Created as a part of OWN’s first ever nonpartisan get-out-the-vote campaign OWN Your Vote, “Sincerely, Camille” follows a trio of women – Camille, Staci, and Sara – navigating life, work, and relationships during a pivotal time in American history. Three friends, three different viewpoints, three varying approaches to evoking civic participation. The series follows the women’s efforts to get their communities informed, engaged, and inspired to act. Whether it be affordable healthcare or legal reform, “Sincerely, Camille” starts the conversation and encourages the audience to continue it. Animation provides a dynamic way of delivering the sermon—minus the preaching.

About Munirah Safiyah Jones
Munirah Safiyah Jones is a writer/filmmaker from Memphis, Tennessee. One of 10 children, Munirah has always had a talent for crafting stories that make folks laugh, while also willing a suspension of disbelief. She began exploring filmmaking as a teen, helming everything from short films to music videos, and went on to work in television news while attending the University of Memphis, where she earned her bachelors in communications with a concentration in Film and Video. She currently works for a billion-dollar financial services company where she creates content for online learning.
She developed an online presence with her animated viral video, “Dating in 2018 – How Men Communicate,” which she wrote, animated, and voiced. It was about, you guessed it, dating in 2018. It garnered the attention of Hollywood, landed her in the writers’ room for season 14 of “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild N’ Out,” and even garnered a few film festival awards. That animated video soon turned into a web-series, “Junt Land,” which is an eclectic mix of satirical, anecdotal and introspective videos in both live-action and animation. When she’s not being the cool aunt, Munirah is crafting words and visuals that feel both familiar and fresh.
