Earlier this year, Netflix launched a powerful campaign that celebrated the diversity of the network’s black creators. “A Great Day in Hollywood” featured Academy Award-winner Spike Lee and industry powerhouses and legends like Ava DuVernay, Alfre Woodard and Lena Waithe. In all, the 60-second ad (and stunning photograph accompanying the campaign) features 47 black creators and actors who work on more than 20 Netflix productions.
