"Until the Lion tells the story, the hunter will always be the hero.” Since Anna May Wong became the first Asian American Hollywood star in the 1920s and Sidney Poitier became the first Black man to win an Oscar in 1958, what have BIPOC actors and filmmakers been fighting to represent in the media? As we celebrate the naming of the Sidney Poitier New American Film School, we’ll dive into a history of representation in front of and behind a camera with discovery quizzes and trivia and discuss why we make a fuss about “minority” voices.
