[FastForward] Hollywood Reps Talk the Browning of Big and Small Screens (Part Two)

Tired of the tropes of “white saviors,” “sassy best friends,” and “super thugs”? (Yeah, us too.) That’s why EBONY.com and the  African American Film Critics Association got together to create Fast Forward, a multi-part roundtable series talking to the real power behind what you see on screen.  This episode, we continue a conversation featuring attorney Nina Shaw, a powerful partner at the blue-chip law firm Del, Shaw, Moonves, Tanaka & Lezcano; talent executive Deborah Byrd; talent agent Andrea Nelson-Meigs; and James Lopez, Head of Motion Pictures at Will Packer Productions.

Watch, listen and learn, plus join the discussion via @ebonymag and @theaafca with #FASTFORWARD
