Child Jumping and Smiling - Diversity in Entertainment Styled

Diversity in Entertainment

From big box office productions to innovations in streaming, we're making sure the fight for equality reaches Hollywood by demanding diversity and inclusion for people of color.

Representation matters

We understand the power of images in the media. They can educate. They can uplift. They can feed implicit biases that unconsciously inform attitudes and perceptions throughout the world. It's important to combat portrayals of Black life on screen that seek to undermine our existence and celebrate the projects that embrace and explore the full dimensions of our humanity.

Equity in Every Frame

We fight for equitable opportunities in the entertainment industry by forming industry partnerships and producing special events that uplift Black excellence.

We have a proud history of advocating for diversity in the entertainment industry. From protesting D.W. Griffith's racist-laden film Birth of a Nation to addressing the lack of diversity both behind and in front of the camera, we stand firm in our commitment to securing equity and equality in Hollywood.

Black entertainment is an integral extension of Black advocacy and activism. Much of Black art emerges from subjugation that was designed to stifle our spirit. Instead, our inextinguishable light brightens the world with imagination, ingenuity, and infinite talent.

To disrupt the production and dissemination of these troubling narratives, the NAACP provides media guidelines that create much-needed awareness about the connections between storytelling choices and resulting social outcomes.
