White Movie Stars Switched With Black Lead Actors In Powerful Poster Series
Notice something different about these movie posters?
That's right, all the lead actors are black.
And again, and again, and yep, again.
Surprised by this? Shocked? Confused, even?
Then that's proof you don't see real life examples of this enough (read: ever, until the incredible Black Panther came and shook things the hell up for Hollywood).
Advocacy group Legally Black took some of the most iconic TV and movie posters in the world, and made one simple switch - the white lead actors became black.
In an effort to highlight unequal representation of black people in the media, the four young activists from south London want to make people stop and think - why don't we see this more?
Of course, the project has been met with criticism (sigh). Team member Francis-Cornibert described some of the comments to Mashable:
"A lot of people were complaining, 'Why are you trying to replace the white actors?'"
"Someone said 'you should just go and make all of the actors in 12 Years a Slave white then.' That's what I don't want people to think the campaign's about. It's not like a pity thing."
She went on:
"It's not about taking a typically white show and making it black, it's about making a black show. Or a southeast Asian show. Any person of colour should feel like they're accurately represented in the media. It should be about making shows that are authentic to those people."
Could not agree more - and we can't wait to spot one of these posters on the commute home.
