"Young people can only aspire to be what they see."—Marvet Britto, founder of the Britto Agency, on the Melissa Harris-Perry Show yesterday, during a great roundtable on the lack of gender parity in entertainment.
The video is viewable here. The full transcript will be here, when available.
The entire segment was great, and I encourage you to watch/read it at some point, if you can. But I particularly loved Britto's succinct and powerful observation about the importance of visible and meaningful diversity.
