Announced by WIRED today, the three-part film, which is titled A People's History of Black Twitter, will explore the origins of Black Twitter as well as "its continued impact far beyond the platform—from amplifying social justice movements to creating viral trends hat drive the culture forward," according to a press release obtained by EBONY.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Jason Parham, Wired and Condé Nast to examine Black Twitter’s undeniable, game changing cultural impact," said Raeshem Nijhon, founder and executive producer, Culture House, in a statement. "At Culture House, we've been looking to the people and voices that constitute Black Twitter for guidance, context, insight, laughter, joy, and inspiration for nearly a decade."
The story of Black Twitter will be delivered exclusively through Black voices who have played in instrumental role in the movement since Black Twitter's inception to present day.
"We thrive on creating projects at the intersection of pop culture and politics with a focus on BIPOC voices, and Jason's reporting encompasses all of this and more," adds Carri Twigg, founding partner and head of development, Culture House. "Stories like this are the reason we built Culture House in the first place."
