Writer, editor, and former attorney April Reign examines the far-reaching impact of her viral hashtag, #OscarsSoWhite. While progress was made in 2017, the success of the film Moonlight at the Academy Awards only serves to highlight the missed opportunities for Hollywood. With the number of content platforms skyrocketing, the inclusion of people of color and marginalized communities remains an urgent need – both in front of and behind the camera.
