Laura Harrier Covers Porter Magazine-Chic and Beating the Hollywood Heat
Hollywood. It’s one interesting place. It’s the realm of the Golden Era of film; yet a landfill of unkind and sad mistreatment. The same home of glitz and glamour that had separate entrances and regulations for black actors and actresses. While some got to portray queens and ladies of leisure; others were unfortunately only in “heart-warming” stories of slaves, housemaids and hard up entertainers.
However, the industry has made some strides. Black actors and actresses have been able to be the Queens, heroes and intellectual (hi Hidden Figures) role models in various film roles. Yet, there is still more that can be done. Some of these roles are still far and in-between of what they can be. Representation is important for all; it’s what helps build confidence and inspiration in others.
In Porter Magazine, actress Laura Harrier dives into this subject matter. Regarding their story with Harrier, Porter Magazine states,
“From Spike Lee’s Oscar-winning ‘BlackKklansman’ to Ryan Murphy’s star-studded new show Hollywood; actor Laura Harrier is carving out an impressive career. She talks to Porter about swapping red carpets for Zoom calls. The strength in community; and the importance of representation in front of and behind the camera.

As one can see, there is much to be learned from those in the “trenches” of Hollywood. Hopefully, open discussion such as this one between Harrier and Porter will help change the movie and television status quo.
