Making her way from Louisville, Kentucky, Toni Williams has pushed herself to pursue a promising film career in New York. This University of Michigan graduate earned a position at Con Edison as a Director of Corporate Affairs. Although Toni reached a level of success that everyone hopes to achieve, she still wanted more. Toni worked as an Adjunct Professor at St. Francis College which gave her the opportunity to launch Brooklyn Savvy.
Brooklyn Savvy is a show that inspires and informs the viewer about issues that are important to their lives. This series discusses topics that are rarely focused on in mainstream media, but deserve attention. Toni’s wanted Brooklyn Savvy to be a platform that levels the playing field. She realized that too often people of color don’t know what they need to know until it is too late, or never find out at all. She wanted to interrupt that inequity by sharing what she has learned through her various experiences and interactions.
Being a mother has only made Toni more committed to achieving all her goals. Since she knows that having a family to support requires a stable source of income she still has her position at Con Edison that provides security while also working on Brooklyn Savvy, still fulfilling her creative aspirations. Toni Williams plans to have her series distributed to major platforms and she plans to achieve that with BLFC’s help. After joining earlier this year, Toni won Best Unscripted Televisions Series at the Black and Latino Film Awards. She is also working with BLFC to get her series on Amazon and working towards a way to monetize her work.
