POC Representation in Film
Over the past century, film has evolved into a universal medium for knowledge, art, storytelling, and enjoyment, but too often, inclusivity is dismissed by the Hollywood norm—the exclusion of diversity rather than its opposition. People of Color are not only severely underrepresented in film, but also frequently portrayed inaccurately. In the last 50 years, significant progress has been made, however, there remain necessary actions and steps to take in the pursuit of racial inclusion and equity in film.
