It’s so important for children to see diverse characters and to see different cultures represented, and not just see these clichés and stereotypes that I feel like my generation grew up with. I think it’s so awesome that kids have Coco and Black Panther, too! It’s a really exciting time. I don’t think that means we’re done. We still have to keep fighting and keep that train moving. […] People need escape. They’re that much more important when things aren’t going so well in the world. I think that now is the time people appreciate being transported into these other worlds. People are kind of yearning to expand their minds, or something. This can’t all be it, you know?
