"What they say":
"What if Spike Lee was a woman? Can you imagine the nerves he would touch with poignantly compelling stories from the soul of a conscious Black woman? Meet Stacey Muhammad: part Spike Lee, part Sista Souljah, part Cornel West. 100% real. 100% powerfully beautiful". - Meca Mckinney.
“Stacey epitomizes what it means to be a Renaissance Woman – Creative Genius, Entrepreneur, and Agent of Social Change. She is the vanguard of talented multi-disciplinarians who explode limited marketing categories and labels designed to make others feel comfortable, more than accurately describe. Stacey stands out, while others fit in. I don't know anyone in this generation using a camera, pen and voice more powerfully and beautifully on behalf of humanity. She informs, entertains and heals through her art, social commentary and mastery of technology. Her courage, independent spirit and commitment to perfect her craft are peerless. Its rare to find someone so down-to-earth, with knowledge of themselves, and an understanding of the power of culture and the industries it intersects with. I'm so honored to partner with her. America, the Diaspora and the World are hers.”
- Cedric Muhammad of CM Cap
