Alicia Bunyan - Sampson is a GTA (Greater Toronto Area) based writer/director, counsellor/advocate, skin and hair care enthusiast and academic. Her work primarily focuses on her identity as a black woman, an exploration of her experiences of trauma and love and the intersection of white supremacy and black identity.
Her films has been shown in Toronto, New York and San Diego as well as aired on CBC, Bell Fibe TV and AspireTV.
She is currently writing her first book and is in pre-production for a short film and her first documentary. Additionally, she is developing a series of skill and self care workshops for black women living with trauma and mental illness and a lecture and workshop series that focuses on polyamory and the black community.
In April of 2017, she launched PROJECT BLACK, which is a long time goal of hers to create a digital database of black businesses in Canada.
In her spare time she enjoys making products for her skin and hair care line and ranting about black identity, white supremacy, polyamory, and sex on all her social media channels.
She also really hates bios as they never reflect her charm, wit and sardonic sense of humour.
