The widespread coverage of race and gender inequality in Hollywood often excludes black women. The wage gap for black women in the entertainment industry is a symptom of a larger issue: the invisibility and devaluing of black women in media culture as performers, producers, and directors.
Kimberlé Crenshaw moderates a panel exploring this narrative alongside solutions to promote black women as creators.
This program is part of the Hammer's Bureau of Feminism initiative.
