Naimah Fuller is a New Media Artist, Independent Filmmaker, Producer/Director, Cinematographer, and Entrepreneur, living in Atlanta, GA. Naimah began her career in the motion picture industry, as a script supervisor working on movie sets at Paramount, Universal, United Artist, and several independent productions. Naimah’s career path took a detour from movie making to television, in the newsroom at WABC-TV in New York City, where she began her career in broadcast journalism. It was at WABC that Naimah developed her skills as a producer and as a writer. Naimah’s documentary movie entitled HOME – THE GREAT MIGRATION OF THE 21ST CENTURY, explores the mass migration of African Americans moving to the southern regions of the nation. The documentary connects the historical dots of this current migration and its reversal in trends to the era now known as The Great Migration of the early 1900’s, that continued through the Civil Rights era into the 1970’s, when more than six million black people left the south in the largest internal migration in the history of the nation. While she was down in the trenches with her camera, something amazing happened. Originally from a small rural town in Georgia, in the process of producing HOME – Naimah rediscovered her own southern roots as the project took her on an incredible odyssey to all the Civil Rights Movement landmark cities, including Atlanta, GA, Selma, Alabama, Memphis, Tennessee, Money Mississippi, as well as New Orleans, Houston, and to the coast lands of the Georgia Sea Islands. A keen producer, Naimah was successfully to bringing several prominent African American who have relocated to the south to her documentary movie project, including Maya Angelou, Morgan Freeman, Danny Glover, Reuben Cannon, jazz giant Terence Blanchard, Ambassador Andrew Young, and Civil Rights veteran Rev. CT Vivian.
