‘Black Panther’ star, Chadwick Boseman: “The actors who are within the pages of this issue give new breath of what Hollywood is and what Hollywood is going to be. And that’s in terms of diversity, ethnicity, gender, and the type of work that we’re doing.”
‘Marvel’ star, Tessa Thompson: “I’m optimistic about the real activism happening inside of the industry and the conversations about equity that are creating material changes.”
‘BlacKkKlansman’ star, John David Washington: “As I was putting this wonderful suit on, I realized it’s not about me, it’s about somebody who looks like me in Kansas or North Carolina, Middle America or in the South, who sees a cover like this and will be inspired to change their environment, to be motivated and say, ‘I can be this, I can do this.”
‘Roma’ star, Yalitza Aparicio: “While my time in the business has been short, it has been a source of pride and hope for many people to see someone that looks like me — an indigenous person — starring in an Oscar-winning director’s film. And a big change for Hollywood.”
