Some black actresses protest against racism in cannes

Bringing into limelight the lack of diversity and inclusion in the French film industry, 16 black actresses took to the red carpet in Cannes and staged a protest against racism, just days after 82 women, led by Cannes jury president Cate Blanchett, launched their own call for gender equality.
Led by actress Aissa Maiga, the group struck a defiant note while promoting a new book, 'Noire N'est Pas Mon Metier' (My Profession is Not Black), reported Variety.
