By making films and writing scripts, I have been inspired by several people’s lives. • In My film “No Maps On My Taps” I became inspired by the dancers’ commitment to their art form. Despite years of racism and lack of opportunity Bunny Briggs, Chuck Green, +and Sandman Sims they continued to develop their jazz tap dance art form. • In researching and writing “Love, Ben Love, Emma”, I delved into the lives of Emma Goldman and Dr. Ben Reitman. These two iconic figures were deeply committed to their causes and each other. They were willing to risk their lives, their security, and their future to help others have healthy, planned children, find gainful employment, and fight for their freedoms. • In researching and writing “Bird Woman, Sacajawea”, I delved into the lives of Sacajawea and the Indigenous Tribes to which she belonged. This research revealed the depths of their spiritual lives and their struggles to endure the difficult life of the 18th Century circumstances.
