Hilliard Guess – WGAW’s Open Letter to Hollywood #BLM - As the Black Lives Matter protest rage on, companies like Hulu, Netflix, Comcast and HBO proclaimed support for the social movement. Hilliard Guess, Co-Chair of the WGAW's Committee of Black Writers, along with Michelle Amor and Bianca Sams wrote an open letter to these companies laying out how they can fulfill their commitment to black folks in Hollywood.

Pete A Turner grabbed Hilliard and the two have a challenging conversation about race, being black and what Hollywood can do to do right by black folks in entertainment. The trio of writers references UCLA's Hollywood Diversity Report for 2020 and the WGAW's own Inclusion report for 2020 which finds server under-representation of blacks in Hollywood.
