A Great Day In Hollywood

"In early June, Netflix brought together 47 of its Black creators, actors, and directors from over 20 series, films, and documentaries to announce a new day in Hollywood. 'A Day for our generation to see untold experiences of our Blackness,' McLaughlin declared. 'A day when Black women are boldly the lead character, whether inmates or scholars. We’re not a genre because there’s no one way to be Black.' Pictured in the photo are Spike Lee, Alfre Woodard, Lena Waithe, Danielle Brooks, Derek Luke, Marlon Wayans, Laverne Cox, and lots more. Folks flew in from every corner of the world just... to be part of the event, which felt more like a family reunion than a production."
