‘I Often Worry That My Time in the Industry Is Limited’: Black Artists Reflect on Diversity in Their Fields

Soon after I started looking into why the black film boom of the early 1990s — an era that gave us the first African-American directors to become household names, Spike Lee and John Singleton — went bust, I saw clear parallels with Hollywood today.

In an article I published last week, featuring a discussion among six black directors who experienced the ’90s boom, I hoped to make those parallels clear for readers: Are the recent advances of a new generation of black filmmakers, built on the success of movies like “Moonlight,” “Get Out” and “Black Panther,” vulnerable to the same dynamics that curtailed the last one?

Readers had a lot to say on Twitter in response. And many were people of color with a personal stake in the answer.
