ICON MANN: WE ARE THE CULTURE: This dialogue focuses on The Academy’s Black membership and the challenges of being successful in a system that was designed to be exclusionary. Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), actor Delroy Lindo (“Da 5 Bloods”), and Academy Award winner, director T.J. Martin (“LA92”), will discuss how Black filmmakers break through barriers and truly realize the power and meaning behind the saying, “We are the culture. Nothing moves without us.” Moderated by Shawn Finnie, Associate Director of Member Relations and Outreach. Available on the Academy's YouTube on October 1st.
