Don't You Forget About Them, Addressing a Lack of Diversity in Cult Classics 

Cover Story for Garnet & Black's Fall 2021 issue, part of a three-article series examining fashion's impact on the entertainment industry. This project started as a project on the lack of diversity in film and how much farther the entertainment industry has to go in terms of representation. It turned into an open conversation about the importance of representation in media, and its effect on our society and our values.
