Your Everyday Heroes is proud to feature one of today’s many esteemed Black female film directors Vick Lee. From an early age, Lee immersed herself in movies and TV, eventually studying film at Columbia College Chicago. Whether telling stories of love or conflict, Lee’s body of work always maintains a socially conscious bend.
In November of 2020, she was unfortunately diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, a disease notorious for its low survival rate. Despite the severity of her condition, her drive to create and inspire remains unhindered. Inspirational cancer stories like Lee’s never fail to remind us that time is precious.
Vick’s story is just one of many that we’re featuring on Your Everyday Heroes

Light in the dark
Fighting with my art
Struggle with the pain
In sunshine and the rain
Imagine how it feels
That I’m loving what I do
Put my all into it
You are me and I am you
I hope that you see through it
I’m living with a fire, inside me is a flame
That wants to take you higher, even if you don’t know my name
And I’m never gon retire, while I’m on this plane
So even when I die, then gon know I came
Walking on my path, giving all I have
I do this for the women, tell em there’s no holding back
Cos you’ve got what it takes
The talent isn’t lacking
So step into the place
And I only imagine
