#MovementMondays Tracy Oliver is an American producer, writer, and actress. A South Carolina native, Oliver has been interested in the arts since she was a child and attended Stanford University with the goals of becoming an actress.  However, Oliver became frustrated with the lack of opportunities she was getting as a performer and realized that she needed to change it up. So she learned to write, direct, and produce.  After taking a playwriting class, she fell in love with the freedom she felt behind the scenes. Following graduation, Oliver moved to LA and attended the USC Peter Stark Producing Program. Upon receiving her MFA in 2010, she reunited with Stanford classmate, Issa Rae, who was also very interested in behind-the-scenes and in providing more opportunities for artists of color. This led them to create the acclaimed web series, The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl, where Oliver served as an actress, writer, and producer. After Awkward Black Girl, Oliver began landing writing gigs with studios and networks including shows like ABC’s The Neighbors and USA’s Survivor’s Remorse. Oliver’s claim to feature film began when she teamed up with Kenya Barris (ABC’s Black-ish creator) to write the comedy, Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016). In 2017, they came back together to write Girl’s Trip, which grossed over $115 million in the domestic box office, making Oliver the first black woman to write a film that grossed over $100 million. Oliver currently has many projects in development, including a half hour comedy First Wives Club based on the successful 1996 film that has been given a pilot order at Paramount TV. On top of that, Oliver is also set to write and make her directorial debut on a horror film, based off of the young-adult novel Survive the Night about a group of girls caught in a situation at an all-night underground rave in New York City, produced by Pharrell Williams. She has stated that she wants both these projects to feature black female leads! With her authentic voice and unique experiences, I know these projects are going to be spectacular! #TracyOliver

#MovementMondays HENRY GOLDING is a British-Malaysian actor of English and Iban ancestry. Based in Singapore and known for hosting travel shows, Golding has had a very exciting year. He will make his first film appearance as the lead in the upcoming adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s bestseller, Crazy Rich Asians, alongside one of my absolute favorites Constance Wu @constancewu . The romantic comedy follows a Chinese-American woman (Wu) who gets a culture shock when she meets her boyfriend’s (Golding) family in Singapore. This film marks a big moment because it will be the first major Hollywood film in over two decades to feature an all-Asian cast, which deserves to be recognized. Golding will then be seen in Paul Geig’s thriller A Simple Favor with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. Also, he recently booked his next project playing the lead in a new drama film, Monsoon, from writer/director Hong Khaou. This guy is on a roll! Crazy Rich Asians premieres August 15th - Go out and support Golding and this historic moment for the Asian-American community! I’ll be there with my entire Puerto Rican family!

#MovementMondays Anthony Ramos is an American actor and singer of Puerto Rican descent. Born and raised by a single mother in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Ramos is not only an amazing performer but a real inspiration.  As a teen, Ramos ambitions lied primarily in baseball but he also enjoyed singing. With the help of his high school theater director who recognized his natural talent, Ramos got a full-ride scholarship to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NY. After graduation, Ramos earned roles in some regional and touring musical productions including Grease,  In The Heights, and Damn Yankees.  In 2015, Ramos got his big break on Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway show Hamilton (as John Laurens & Philip Hamilton) that has changed his life in many ways. Since Hamilton, Ramos is definitely not throwing away his shot and also using his voice to help others. In 2017,  he reunited with Lin-Manuel Miranda for the song “Almost Like Praying” a release to benefit Hurricane Maria victims and also travelled to his family’s homeland, Puerto Rico, to help out anyway he could. Ramos can currently be seen as Mars Blackmon in Spike Lee’s Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It alongside the talented, DeWanda Wise. “There’s a lot of content out there that, unfortunately, I don’t feel is saying a lot,” he told Huffington Post. “This show talks about issues that are going on in New York and all over the world: sexual harassment, verbal abuse, physical abuse, gentrification, the one percent, the tax break, all sorts of things. It speaks for a lot of people who feel like they can’t speak up or don’t know what to say or don’t know how to express what they’re feeling or can’t quite define what they’re feeling. I’m proud to be a part of a piece of art that’s not only doing that but also giving people the courage to step out a little more and educate themselves on music, culture and political issues.” Ramos is set to appear in films ‪A Star Is Born ‬directed by Bradley Cooper later this year and ‪Godzilla‬: King of Monsters next year. From Bushwick to Broadway to the Big Screen...Ramos is killing it! I cannot be more proud to watch his journey! @anthonyramosofficial 🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷
