CBS is one smart channel when it comes to picking leads for their shows because choosing Queen Latifah to lead The Equalizer and LL Cool J to lead NCIS LA has to be one of the smartest decisions ever!

The two actors and artist bring something so bright to the table that you can’t help but to root for them.

Recently Forbes shared that the two stars are working towards change within the Black community.

Via Forbes:

“For(bes) The Culture sat down with legendary actor and entertainer LL Cool J and Marc Pritchard CBO of Procter & Gamble, to discuss the measures needed to promote equity in the media industry and enable varied and authentic storytelling.

Widen The Screen, according to Pritchard, is about telling stories by Black creators in order to increase Black culture’s prominence. The campaign is a call to action for increasing investment in multicultural creators, the stories they produce, and diverse media spending.

The Queen Collective, a four-year-old collaboration between P&G, Queen Latifah, Flavor Unit Entertainment, and Tribeca Studios, is assisting a record-breaking number of filmmakers and other artists in producing their own documentaries and scripted works.

“Queen Latifah launched the Queen Collective four years ago. That is our flagship program. We’ve now completed eight films. Six more are in the works. “We also have a partnership development fund through which we collaborate with black-owned and run media companies,” explains Pritchard.

The stories, as per Pritchard, accurately portray Black life from all angles and are true to form. “It’s not the same limited perspective on Black life that the world has been exposed to for so long. It embodies the fullness, richness, and vastness of Black lives.”
