Kofi Siriboe on the Truth About Representation in Hollywood

There’s no other show presently like it on television — a bittersweet fact for the cast of Queen Sugar, who were on hand at Sunday night’s Vulture Festival to premiere the upcoming season six finale of the beloved OWN series. “There’s been a lot of conversation about progress for Black people in Hollywood: ‘The time has come.’ We’re seeing more work for Black directors,” moderator and Vulture critic Angelica Jade Bastién began. “I’m curious, as people actually acting in the industry, how do you feel about where Hollywood is today with regard to celebrating and nurturing Black creativity?” The thoughtful prompt elicited an equally thoughtful and candid response from star Kofi Siriboe.
