Clemons is best known for her role as Bianca on the TV series, Transparent. She also plays Sophia in the MTV original series, Eye Candy. In the new film DOPE, she does an outstanding job, as she stars as a lesbian tomboy.
A critical hit and audience favorite out of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and an official selection of the 2015 Cannes International Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight, in DOPE, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself. DOPE opens nationwide June 19. 2015.

arraignment.. black film & tv on trial!!
Thirty years ago, The Cosby Show dominated the airwaves. The Huxtables were upper middle class, wholesome and fun. The show was ripped up by some, however, for not being "believable." Fast forward three decades, and now Empire is the new hit show with blacks. Once again, it's being ripped up for being "unbelievable." What makes for good, true, believable entertainment in the black community? Who represents the Black community best? Cosby? Empire? Martin? Blackish? Who is it? Let's talk about it this Sunday: in The Barbershop!

June : Employment and Blacks in the Workplace
According to the Washington Post since the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started reporting unemployment by race over 42 years ago, blacks have always been unemployed at a higher rate than whites. According to the August 2014 BLS unemployment number, blacks had an unemployment rate of 11.4% which is twice that of whites (5.3%).
According to Diversity Inc. There are six Black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, accounting for 1.2% of all Fortune 500 CEOs.
June is focused on employment as well as diversity in the workplace. It is well known that diversity is lacking at the top of many of the companies we support. We are not asking for positions, we are saying where are the mentors who are already there and how can we craft more leaders? Many of us have experienced working twice as hard to still be in the same position and know the feeling of training folks who then become our boss. It is not okay that a company has 30% of its employees who are minorities and less than 10% in upper management. We have to call diversity in the workplace to carpet and challenge companies to do better. Employment also means lowering the unemployment rate, by ensuring that individuals in our neighborhoods know how to fill out an application, have interview skills, and know the simple basics of searching for a job. These are simple steps we all can take.
