Ms. Camille Tucker
Before “Straight Outta Compton” was a t-shirt slogan, there was a time when screenwriter Camille Tucker had to defend her hometown. As daughter of the city—both her father and brother formerly served as mayor, Camille was bused to an affluent, predominantly white private school 23 miles away, What helped her make sense of things was when she began reading the works of black women writers. Not only did their words change her world forever, they sparked her passion for writing. Camille has produced and directed six short films. Her short, Cellular, won Best Short Narrative Film at Boston’s Roxbury Int'l Film Festival. In 2018, Camille was 1 of 11 filmmakers selected in the PGA Power of Diversity Workshop. She is the co-writer on the hotly anticipated biopic, The Clark Sisters:First Ladies of Gospel, due to air on the Lifetime Network in 2020. Camille holds an MFA in screenwriting and is a member of the Writers Guild of America, West.
