#OscarsSoWhite? Representation in Hollywood
Why does media representation matter? What is its impact?
In 2016 the Academy Awards drew criticism when no actors of color were nominated for major awards.
In advance of the 2017 Oscars, join the conversation on race and gender representation in film and popular culture with featured guest:
Pedro Bermudez, Visiting Assistant Professor of Cinema, University of Hartford and independent filmmaker.
