“I’m sure Jodie Whittaker will be great as The Doctor, but this was still quite the lost opportunity for some much-needed color representation in a franchise that has only recently been diversifying its main actors.” For Wear Your Voice Magazine, July 2017.

Black and Brown Sisters Are Doing Visual Media For Themselves

“When the dominant visual media paradigm is one of hegemonic whiteness, there are a limited number of choices for women of color. Submit yourself to the hegemony and take whatever scraps casting agents, directors, producers throw at you even if they might be problematic. Or, smash that shit and begin carving out your own space. More and more black and brown women are choosing the latter, and it is glorious.” For Wear Your Voice Mag, June 2017.
