On this week’s episode of the SpeakHER podcast we sat down with Amber J. Phillips, a respected storyteller, reproductive justice activist and political content strategist. You may know her as one-half of the successful The Black Joy Mixtape podcast where she claimed the name the “High Priestess of Black Joy.” During her ever-evolving transformation she now goes by “Amber Abundance,” which signified a significant shift, relating to how she walks through the world as a young, queer, full-figured Black woman from the Midwest. We talked about the ways in which she learned to reclaim her autonomy, learning vulnerability, all while living in the world (and on social media) as her full authentic self.

For 2024’s iteration of MadameNoire and HelloBeautiful’s annual series Women to Know, we knew we wanted to celebrate the people who help make the joys of film and television possible. To create art is to create magic. This year, we spotlight Hollywood Executive’s changing the face of cinema.
