Is Hollywood Pushing Black Actors to TV?
An interesting read for several reasons, one of which is that I just did not know Jennifer Beals is black. I mean, now that it's been said to me, and I look at a picture, *of course she is.* But I haven't really watched her work, so my reference is Flashdance. Now, I saw that for the first time just a few years ago, so not as a child (when I missed that sort of thing all the time), but honestly...I mean, the character is White in that, yes? And so I just assumed that she was White, too? Because I had no idea.
But read the article to see thoughts about why so many really good Black actors are on TV, instead of at the movies.
