Netflix’s “A Great Day in Hollywood” Takes a Stand
Netflix recently released its new “Strong Black Lead” initiative with A Great Day in Hollywood.
The image might look familiar. Inspired by the 1958 photo of jazz legends, “A Great Day in Harlem,” the commercial features celebrities like Ava DuVernay, Spike Lee, and our very own beloved Black lesbian hero Lena Waithe.
Narrated by Stranger Things actor Caleb McLaughlin, it empowers Black culture and storytelling by recognizing content creators and on-screen talent. It also highlights the company’s intention to focus on authenticity with the black audience.
