Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with one of Tagg Magazine’s 2022 Enterprising Women, Sheri Johnson (@the_sheri_johnson). Sheri is the founder and CEO of the streaming network Strong Voices Television (@SVTVNetwork). We talk about how she took a comment from a friend and turned it into a series and then created an entire network. We examine the idea of what it means to be labeled a stud and why Sheri doesn’t identify as one. We also talk about Sheri’s new children’s book “Black Girl Magic”. Sheri’s web series was born out of a comment that her life should be a tv show. She took that idea and ran with it and created Studville TV, a web series about four black lesbians. Studville TV was on Youtube for 3 seasons before it was demonetized by the platform. This lead Sheri to create her own streaming network with the purpose of championing the LGBTQ+ community in television, film, sports, and advocacy. The network gained 15,000 subscribers within the first 30 days from launch and has been growing ever since.
