LIFE | IDRIS ELBA SPEECH ON DIVERSITY IN THE MEDIA AND FILM
“Diversity of thought”
Actor Idris Elba (Star Trek Beyond, Prometheus) recently gave a speech on diversity in Britain’s television and movie industry, during a parliamentary meeting organized by UK’s Channel 4 Diversity Conference.
Elba talks about his own challenges as a working black actor in the UK. His speech covers race, a conservative culture, and media industry reluctant to adopt programming, and technological change that reflects real-life.
Definitely worth watching. Idris Elba will be appearing in Star Trek Beyond, The Dark Tower.
