Cannes Lions: Jesse Jackson calls out Hollywood, tech on lack of diversity
from The Hollywood Reporter
"For too long, Hollywood has stereotyped people in ways that have either damaged the culture or been indifferent to change," Jackson said. Speaking June 20 at Cannes Lions, Rev. Jesse Jackson called out Hollywood and Silicon Valley for their lack of diversity and pushed the audience — made up mostly of advertisers and marketers — to leverage their media reach to promote positive messages for women, people of color and the LGBTQ community.
