About the team
Sabaah Folayan (Director, Producer) is a storyteller and activist based in Brooklyn, New York. She was a lead organizer for The Millions March, one of the largest marches for racial justice in New York history. Folayan traveled to Ferguson in 2014 to learn the truth behind the dramatic scenes playing out on the news. Hearing the stories from the community inspired her to embark on her directorial debut Whose Streets?.
Damon Davis (Co-Director, Producer) hails from St. Louis, Missouri, and is an award-winning interdisciplinary artist with work in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. His piece, All Hands on Deck, helped shape public perception of the Ferguson Uprising as part of a broader human rights movement. Davis teamed up with director Sabaah Folayan to make Whose Streets?, their first collaboration and a directorial debut.
