πŸ–€You are seen. ⁠

We believe in inclusivity, intersectionality, and giving voice to the voiceless at The Institute. We also believe that media and storytelling is a powerful tool for education and social change. In an effort to raise awareness we are highlighting a few films that speak on racial injustice and shed light on the issue that is still incredibly prominent today. ⁠

Please share any others in the comments below so we can continue to educate and communicate. We support you. #BLM

I'm italian, here the presence of black people is perceived very differently. Unfortunately I must say that Italy is a very racist country. Black people, most of all nigerian, are here to work in the fields, they are totally exluded in our society. So my opinion and feelings coud be not representative for this question. There are very few movies about balck people, ad usualy are stories of fighting for freedom. I think to "Cry freedom", and many words of Steve Biko are very similar to those of Tamika Mallory. I loved very much "Hidden figures" and "Moonlight", a very impressive movie, not simple to understand for white, european people. I hate the movies in which the is only a black character, we call him/her "il nero di ordinanza", is to say the isolated black presence useful for the production to not be blamed as racist.

I recognize some but not all of those films. It would be really helpful if you could list the title of the film for each picture please?

Thank you for your leadership. Solidarity with communities affected by police violence ✨

πŸŽ‰πŸ“Ί Another landmark achievement!⁠
⁠
We're excited to announce our newest findings from our SeeJane 2020 TV report. ⁠
In live-action kids' TV shows female characters account for a majority of screen time and speaking time, higher than any previous year we have studied!⁠

In this latest study we have expanded our analysis to explore representations of characters across six dimensions: gender, race, LGBTQ+, disabilities, age, and body size. We also include expert recommendations for interventions to improve representation. Take a look, and share widely with your community!
