5 Black-Owned Production Companies Changing the Industry

The Hollywood landscape is changing with more opportunities for representation arising each year. Films like Black Panther and BlacKkKlansman earned a slew of awards this year and rewarding these incredible Black filmmakers for their work will only continue as the industry diversifies. From top to bottom, the industry is hearing more stories from diverse individuals, and Black-owned production companies are leading the way.

Harpo Productions

Harpo Productions comes from media icon Oprah Winfrey. The production company is responsible for several television programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Phil, and Rachael Ray – the company also had a hand in films such as Selma and Precious.
