Every Single Word is a video series that edits down popular films to only the words spoken by people of color. The result: videos that often have less than a minute of run time.
Mr. Marron will speak on his experience as an actor who has regularly been courted by talent agents and then told that there would be a scarcity of work for "his type."
He will cover the importance of representation, the consequences of symbolic annihilation, and the importance of everyone seeing their reflection in popular stories that claim to be universal.
