As people of color, we often don’t see ourselves represented in the media. We grew up watching white people dominate our television and movie screens, wondering where the people that looked like us were.

Minorities make up nearly 40% of the population in the United States, yet we only represent 16% of the roles in Hollywood. 94% of film executives are white, which may explain the lack of diversity in movies.

We had professional actors and BuzzFeed employees recreate iconic movie posters and write about their experience. We think it’s important for people of color to see that they can play love interests, dramatic leads, and humorous roles. People of color are more than just token sidekicks.
