Malika Jones on Motherhood, Meditation and the Empathy of Black Creatives

Check out Episode 2 of our series #BlackTea

This week on #BlackTea, we welcome Malika Jones, ACD (copy) at Cashmere Agency. Malika speaks on accessing human truths as a Black woman in advertising, motherhood and the ad industry, and her career goal of talking to Black communities globally. She also takes us through the powerful Crenshaw Core project she worked on, helping small businesses in South L.A. thrive in the face of rapid gentrification—a high point to date in her varied and evolving creative career.

Black Tea is a video series that exists to make the independent voices of our fellow Black adwomen louder in the industry. If you identify as a Black woman in advertising and you’d like to be interviewed, please fill out this self-submission form. For questions about the show, please get in touch. Note: We do not currently take interviewee nominations or recommendations from agencies or third parties.
