Khalil Munir in South Philly

Connecting people, stories and authentic power.

Kuyamba Media produces meaningful documentary film, TV and new media from our homebase near Washington, DC and across the globe. At the moment, we are editing a web series we taped in Ghana, producing a feature documentary film—WHAT’S IN A NAME?—and developing additional multiplatform projects.

Kuyamba Media was founded by producer and director Malkia K. Lydia. She has created content steeped in history and culture for television, NGOs, and two major historical museums. In 2017, for the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, Malkia produced an archive-based video installation about education access that includes her mom’s journey through school desegregation.
