“There have been great strides made since the time I started 30 years ago — I looked around and I saw no Black faces. I didn’t see my story and myself reflected very much at all in television or cinema,” the Oscar winner tells The Hollywood Reporter. “So as I sit here today, 30 years from the time I started, I see a huge difference. I see Black women, Black faces, Black people all around me. I see our stories being told. And so that tells me progress is happening. Is there work to be done? Yeah, but there’s always work to be done.”
