Description

***EXPLICIT LANGUAGE***

This podcast features Cheryl L. Bedford, whose name should be in the dictionary next to Hollywood Diversity and Inclusion.

Bedford is a longtime outspoken Hollywood producer, who has always advocated for fairness. Best known as a producer of the still talked about 2011 “Dark Girls” documentary on colorism, her fearless, passionate voice has started the proactive organization Women of Color Unite. The group - for Women of Color behind the scenes and in front of the camera - addresses the dismal numbers and treatment of us – Women of Color - in entertainment. 

In addition to discussing Women of Color Unite, also known as WOCU (https://wocunite.com/), we discuss The JTC List (See WOCU website for more info) – a database of Women of Color in entertainment. Plus, we’ll hear about the successful mentorship initiative #StartWith8Hollywood (https://www.startwith8hollywood.com/), a partnership with The Bitch Pack, headed by Thuc Nguyen, that’s shaking up Hollywood gatekeepers.

Hold on to your hats and seats because this interview is lit with hard-hitting, in your face facts.
