Michael B. Jordan is looking to change Hollywood, literally! The actor, alongside the Color of Change organization, has launched the #ChangeHollywood initiative in an effort to end the pattern of systemic racism in the entertainment capital of the world.
Hollywood has a history of racism … Excluding Black talent, silencing Black voices, derailing Black careers, and propping up policing and injustices…
Hollywood, break the pattern it’s about that time !! #ChangeHollywood
— Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan) July 23, 2020
The #ChangeHollywood initiative begins “with a roadmap for change that lays out tangible ways to invest in anti-racist content and authentic Black stories, invest in Black talent and reinvest police funds to support Black communities,” this according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Throughout the project, companies, executive leadership, staff and talent will be provided with recommendations as well as forthcoming resources to support follow-through, including directories, templates, audit analysis, taskforce convenings, writers rooms and consulting sessions.”
Jordan explains the roadmap as a journey to racial justice stating:
“We are all accomplices in the fight to transform Hollywood, and we invite content creators and industry leaders to join us in working together to #ChangeHollywood. We look forward to including a variety of voices in doing what we do best: telling authentic stories, bringing people together, partnering with influential artists, and changing the rules of the game.”
Kudos to MBJ for being the change he wants to see!
