Netflix Just Reached Peak Black
The streaming service brought 47 of its black actors together to re-create an iconic photo and make a bold statement about its stance on representation in Hollywood.
Netflix brought its biggest black stars together to recreate the legendary “A Great Day in Harlem” photo.
The photo re-creation is accompanied by this video, which premieres on TV at the 18th BET Awards Sunday.
The video also spotlights some of Netflix's biggest partners, such as Ava DuVernay, Spike Lee, and Lena Waithe.
As you can imagine, bringing together this many creatives in one space led to quite a few fun behind-the-scenes moments, which Netflix shared with BuzzFeed News.
So much black girl magic!
There's also this black AF moment where Alfre Woodard leads the group in singing "Lift Every Voice and Sing," aka the black national anthem.
A great day in Hollywood, indeed.
