In a new video released by Disney, Cast Members share their experience with racial inequality.
In the video description, the Disney YouTube channel states: “Several of our colleagues created this powerful and very personal video to share with their fellow employees, highlighting the need for greater understanding, unity and action to address racial inequality in our country. We believe Black lives matter and that this message is one that everyone should hear. That’s why we’re sharing it with you.”
The video addresses ways in which racism has impacted both the personal and professional lives of the Disney Cast Members interviewed. It also encourages viewers to research the impact of racial inequality and break down long-lasting stereotypes.
The video calls for solidarity with the Black community, to fight for social justice regardless of background, and to unite to strive for positive change.
