Her question provoked serious thought and introspection from people of color in arts and film, leaving many to wonder if the #OscarsSoWhite will not only apply to nominees, but also to attendees this year.

To follow up, Jada posted a video this morning [Monday, January 18] to talk about the power of people color and how the community needs to realize their potential when it comes to evoking change; a poignant message on a day of remembrance of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.

We must stand in our power!We must stand in our power.
