It was June 13, 2020, Antina Campbell, an African American actress, content creator, writer, and producer, found herself unable to remain silent about the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta, Georgia. Campbell had originally begin writing for her virtual scene studio course lead by Mr. Richard Lawson at the Richard Lawson Studios. Disheartened by the tragedies, she transferred her pain into purpose. From this, OUR KIND was conceived, which has now evolved into a 15-minute narrative film and a movement. OUR KIND is a story that will challenge you to think beyond yourself and ask, “Is it just the color of our skin that divides us?” Directed by award-winning producers Gingi Rochelle and Nia Hill, the film will thematize racism, sexism and socialism from the perspective of a 17-year-old young African American male with Asperger’s Syndrome, played by actor Kyrel Jaundoo, a 60-year-old racist European male, played by Oscar nominee/Golden Globe -Nominated Eric Roberts, a 70-year-old retired African American Professor of Theater Arts, played by NAACP Image Award Winner, Starletta DuPois, and a positive young Hispanic male nurse played by Hector David Rivera, Jr. Viewers will be encouraged to analyze themselves about love and racism, the “David and Goliath” story. The goal of OUR KIND is for individuals to search their heart and evaluate the level of love one has for himself that creates fear, arouses hatred that invokes a racist behavior. Campbell says, “In the beginning was the word and the word was love and the word will always be love.” Love drives out darkness.
Campbell’s acting career began in 2009 on the set of the Donald B. Welch Production “Idella’s Soul Shack”. She then went on to work behind the scenes as a professional stage manager and manager of music entertainment as well as other forms of non-profit production for film festivals, theaters, etc. before returning to acting appearing in the short Unusual Predictions in 2019 and then appearing in the 2020 as Veronica in Amazon Prime series “Cycles”.
