About

Whether we’re aware or not, we’re constantly surrounded by inaccurate portrayals of minority groups in media. Behind the Media Lens focuses on minority representation in entertainment and the importance of diversity in casting and inclusion in movies and TV shows. We are four University of Washington students looking to examine popular TV shows, movies, and film adaptations of comics, analyzing how minority groups are represented/misrepresented in them, emphasizing the importance of accurate portrayals of different cultures and groups to better reflect society today. We aim to appeal to all media consumers (you!), to create a more educated and actively engaged consumer of the media around us. American society is a melting pot of people from all corners of the world with different backgrounds, and it should be accurately represented as such in the media – it’s time to engage in #RealTalk.
