Artistic Pride Productions was created to provide thought provoking and passionate artistic opportunities for minority and women artists who are marginalized in the theater community.
Tanesha M. Ford’s entire career has culminated to this moment - this job. She received her Bachelors of Arts in Theater at Florida A&M University, after which Tanesha spent three months studying in Los Angeles under Ben Guillory. Following that, Tanesha worked the next six years as a Project Manager in Insurance/Accounting appraisals. She left that field to then work as a Community Outreach Liaison for the Philadelphia School District. Realizing that Tanesha had denied her artistic passions for too long, she returned to the theater and television. Some of her more memorable performances where “Lucid”, an original play at the Cherry Lane Theater, Mariah in “Twelfth Night”, Jocelyn Dunbar in “Season’s Greetings”, and Wanda in an episode of HBO’s, “The Wire”. Tanesha wrote and performed a one-woman show, “All of Me”, in Philadelphia and New York where Anthony Wills, Jr. directed one of the productions. Their artistic collaboration was born there. Including with Pride From The Door, Tanesha has written two plays and in the midst of a third.
