Alright this has kinda become a template of mine for new communities, more or less born out of tagging one too many of the legendary "Intro Posts" of the olden days from other comms I adopted a co-mod position on. Basically the gist is this: "Instead of having a bunch of Introduction Posts Scattered around the community as it grows (no matter how helpful it is to the post count), I've decided to create one singular Thread that allows members of the com to read and get to each other (if they wish), maybe even make new friends with a common interest. Fill out the application below in the text-area box and post your intro into the comments section below. If you don't want to fill a certain part of the application below, simply remove it.

While the almighty google provides a great plenty of information on just about anything and everything you can think of, I've recently learned obtaining information for a multipurpose community is just a little more difficult than searching or finding information for only subject.

Basically, the purpose of this thread is simple: If you happen to come across any news concerning major or obscure disney or even televison/movie news and etcetera featuring people of color characters in Disney, please leave a link here and it will be posted to the community. Comments are screened.

[livejournal.com profile] disney_pocs is looking for co-moderators. The only stipulations are that you have to be well versed in the realm of navigating livejournal functions, a disney fan (one who doesn't bash whatever they don't like) and well, generally being willing to be a fair and firm mod. If you're interested in a Co-Mod position, please use this template to apply. Comments are screened.

Kida - the Forgotten Disney Princess
Atlantis: The Lost Empire is not considered a Disney classic, but is definitely one of Disney’s gems, as a film that takes on mythological ideas and expands upon it by creating a plausible world that blends the spiritual with the scientific. It has a few problems - elements of White Savior-ism for example - but I consider it one of Disney’s great underrated films.

The one character that I think is perhaps one of the most underrated women in Disney’s animated films is Kida, Disney’s forgotten princess of Atlantis. As she was created in the post-1990s Disney Renaissance but pre-Princess and the Frog, she is unfortunately in the limbo of Disney films. She is also one of the few princesses who is not the protagonist of the film she is in, and the only princess not to be featured in a musical film, the big stick that drives her into not being considered among the princess elites.

Disney has worked overtime in recent years to leave that past behind, and a surprising groundswell of support from black viewers for a new TV cartoon called “Doc McStuffins” is the latest indication that its efforts may be paying off.

Aimed at preschoolers, “Doc McStuffins” centers on its title character, a 6-year-old African-American girl. Her mother is a doctor (Dad stays home and tends the garden), and the girl emulates her by opening a clinic for dolls and stuffed animals. “I haven’t lost a toy yet,” she says sweetly to a sick dinosaur in one episode.

“It truly warmed my heart and almost brought tears to my eyes when my 8-year-old, Mikaela, saw ‘Doc McStuffins’ for the first time and said, ‘Wow, mommy — she’s brown,’ ” Kia Morgan Smith, an Atlanta mother of five, wrote on her blogCincomom.com. Myiesha Taylor, a Dallas doctor who blogs at CoilyEmbrace.com, took her praise a step further, writing, “This program featuring a little African-American girl and her family is crucial to changing the future of this nation.”

131 African American Women Physicians From Around The World Join Together To Express Thanks And Support For Disney’s Groundbreaking Children’s TV Show Doc McStuffins.



Since the Cosby show went off the air in 1992, we have not seen as many positive African American images on T.V. as we had hoped. This was especially true for our small children. Outside of Sesame Street, it seemed that children’s TV was still lacking the representation of diversity that made up the United States. But that has all changed with one new children’s program.

We have written a couple of entries in our blog about why we love Disney’s Doc McStuffins. We have discussed how we believe that this program featuring a little African American girl and her family is crucial to changing the future of this nation.

We also started a campaign to express our thanks to Disney and Brown Bag Films for creating, producing and airing Doc McStuffins. What started out as a simple collage of a few African American women physicians expressing thanks to Disney and Brown Bag Films has now taken on a life of its own. When we first started the collage we never thought we would get anywhere close to the current number of physicians who have agreed to lend their image to this project. But here we stand today with what we believe may be one of the most moving visual images of African American women in some time. [SOURCE]
