The list of black men who publicly disrespect and abuse black women’s image in the media is long and exhausting, so it’s refreshing, when we see black men like Broderick Hunter making an effort to understand the plight of black women and attempting to speak up and stand up for us. Broderick Hunter, is one such man who has a history of uplifting and encouraging black women and more specifically, dark-skinned black women.
In an interview with Mame’ Damey from Mame Says he talked about black women in television, Broderick said, “I would like to see more black women in lead roles. I really want to see more black women behind the scenes as well from producers, stunt women, chefs, costume, editing etc. There’s many ways black women can be represented not just being on set, there’s also hair and nail techs. To this day majority hair and nail techs on set when I’m working are white and I would like to see more people of color being represented.”
