Welcome to our monthly editorial series A Day in the Life where we ask successful women we admire to share the daily minutiae of their professional lives, from the rituals that set them up for success to their evening wind-down routines. This month, we caught up with Olivia Charmaine Morris, the founder and CEO of Black Monarch Entertainment, to talk about how she’s championing artists from marginalized communities, what inspires her to wake up at 5:00 am every morning, and her favorite forms of self-care.
Legendary independent actor, film producer and comedian Brian Hooks is more than a funny successful Black man who’s catapulted his way into Hollywood. When we saw him in “3 Strikes” and “Soul Plane” back in the early 2000s…there was a natural funny he’s never pushed away from. However, entertainment doesn’t overthrow his engagement with the next generation of talent who looks up to him.
Hooks spoke with us about some of his most recent projects in the works coming from the Indie film background.

As someone who has embraced her melanin, queerness, and woman power, Morris is committed to diversifying the industry and bringing new voices into the fold.
