I was revisiting the conversation of minorites in Hollywood in the aftermath of the Grammy’s. I think the conversation of opportunity is really the heart of the discussion. I am not talking about an expectation or entitlement but a simplistic idea of providing talented individuals a chance to showcase their talent. I know Hollywood is in the spotlight because of the awards shows and recent movie releases but this issue can be and often is seen in most industries. American privilege, apathy and bias have created a perception and environment for subtle racial inequality.
Below is the playlist for the conversation that was had with three prominent black professionals in Hollywood. There conversation with complex spans 6 videos that provide an interesting dialogue on minorities in Hollywood and how we could start the conversation in making more opportunities. I have to say that it must start changing the mindset of the individual in such a way we influence the community altogether.
