Geiszel Godoy is a mother, wife and veteran. Her life experiences prepared her for her journey into book publishing. She joined her husband in 2016 to start a publishing house called Black Sands Entertainment to provide the opportunity to write stories about African American greatness that were generally hidden from mainstream media. Over the years, she has acquired incredible skills in the accounting side, becoming the CFO and taking care of everything related to logistics and taxes for the company. This liability covers hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential waste and penalties if not handled properly. This is why she is a leader in the comic book space. She also wrote the titles Mori’s Family Adventures and Ineola, a new manga series for YA audiences.
Black Sands Entertainment has been selected to present Shark aquarium for investment January 7, 2022. As a company with a strong focus on independence, the national attention this will bring will help us avoid entanglements with industry while developing much grander productions. We are unable to disclose the details of the former, but we can say that many companies that started Shark Tank in the past have grown into multi-hundred million dollar companies. It is perhaps the greatest moment in the history of black entertainment. Tune in Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
As a pioneer in the struggle for African American representation in the entertainment industry, Black Sands Entertainment is known for creating comics and other content. Popular brand titles include Black Sands, Cosmic Girls, Mori’s Family Adventures and more. On top of that, Black Sands Entertainment raised over $ 2,000,000 from over 5,000 investors when the company launched its campaigns on WeFunder. The brand has also worked with senior animators from Disney, Sony, Pixar, Bron, Amazon Studios, Nickelodeon, Rainmaker, among others. They receive over five million impressions per month on social media, have sold over 200,000 units to date and are now continuing their success with the BSP Comics app.
“It’s amazing to look back and reflect on the business that my wife, Geiszel and I have built,” said Manuel Godoy, president and author of Black Sands Entertainment. “It all started when we couldn’t find children’s books and comics that represented our culture, and more importantly, our son and daughter at the time. Since then we have produced several bestselling comics, books and now our BSP Comics app. Considering all that we have accomplished, the BSP Comics app is by far the most rewarding project we have worked on considering the effect it has on the entertainment industry and the opportunities it has offers to the African American community.
