Color Under the Lights: Representation in Film

People of color have faced limited representation on screen. And it’s not just a lack of roles. Characters that play into stereotypes, actors with limited makeup options, and a lack of diversity behind the scenes all play into a larger, industry-wide problem. These factors have prevented people of color working in film from presenting their best face to the world, and have limited how authentic their characters look on screen. Actress, writer and director Gabourey Sidibe, showrunner Tanya Saracho and celebrity makeup artist Lola Okanlawon dig into the limitations on color under the lights—and how to create change moving forward.
