#OscarsSoWhite: What's next for entertainment?

In 2015, #OscarsSoWhite was created, forcing the Academy to make changes not only to its structure but also its mindset with respect to inclusion of traditionally underrepresented communities. Hollywood followed suit, resulting in movies reflecting experiences of marginalized communities. 2018 will be an improvement & we will discuss those films & TV shows. But what is next? Is #OscarsSoWhite still relevant? What more can be done? Who should be held accountable? What does diversity really mean?
