On the heels of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, which seek to expose and correct the abuse suffered by women and men in the entertainment industry, Film Streams invited three outstanding women, all originally from Omaha, to join us in a conversation about their accomplishments and experiences in the news and entertainment industry:
is a two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee who has garnered attention for her roles in critically lauded television shows “Treme,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” “The Get Down” and “The Chi.”
Symone D. Sanders
has become a high profile political commentator and cable-news staple following her time as national press secretary for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’s 2016 presidential campaign.
is a best-selling author and accomplished playwright whose television projects include “Supergirl,” “GLOW,” and the upcoming “Huge in France.”
Moderated by Diana Martinez, PhD, Film Streams Education Director and host of the Hollywood in Color podcast.
