“From a very young age, music was very much in my house. I would sit with my mom, with the old LPs, listening to The Beatles and Carly Simon and Lionel Richie. The old LPs used to have the lyrics. From there, I would put on dance and music displays for my family, just to entertain them and make people laugh and smile.”

The “British Oscars” just took a bold step toward ensuring diversity in film — take note, Hollywood

  • Films looking to compete in two major categories at the BAFTA awards must now demonstrate a commitment to diversity in order to be nominated
  • Starting in 2019, films will have to demonstrate they have worked to improve representation of marginalized groups in front of and behind the camera — or even in the film’s audience.
  • The groups specified by the academy include people of color, people living with disabilities, women and LGBTQ people.

    • Industry access and opportunities
    • Opportunities for diversity in audience development
