16 black French actresses protested equality, racism & inclusion at Cannes film festival last Wednesday =====================================
To coincide with the launch of their book "Being Black is not my job" (Noire n'est pas mon metier) the protest was led by French actress Aissa Maiga.
Wearing Balmain dresses designed by Balmain's mixed race designer #OlivierRousteing, the women denounced the racism they've endured whilst trying to work in the French film industry.
Actress Nadege Beausson-Diagne, was once told, "You can't play her, she's a lawyer" / "Luckily you have fine features and you are not negroid, not too black..." / "for a black, you are really very intelligent. You should have been white." 😑====================================
