Shaka R.

Oakland, CA, USA


ShakaJamal is a culturally innovative artist and filmmaker from Oakland, California. His experiences as film producer, director, cinematographer, editor, writer, performing artist, and music producer bring a distinctive and invaluable perspective to any venture. ShakaJamal searches for stories that reveal the unseen scars of everyday people and strives to reveal how that pain is transformed into a motivating force in their lives. He searches for stories of unification rather than division, yet still allows room for the bitterness of hardship to resonate as a beautiful truth. ShakaJamal is a graduate of Tuskegee University where he earned a BA in History. He received a Masters of Fine Arts in Cinema at San Francisco State University. ShakaJamal is the first filmmaker from Oakland, CA to receive the Game Changers Fellowship which lead me to premiere a series of short documentaries in New York at Harlem’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. His work has premiered both nationally and internationally, on television, and in numerous film festivals.
