It looks like The Academy wants to start the conversation.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just launched an exciting new virtual series.

The series will include virtual panel discussions from members of the organization as well as the public.

The new series titled, Academy Dialogues: It Stars with Us will discuss race, ethnicity, gender, history, and the art of filmmaking.

We know that the series’ first installment is called “The Power of Narrative.”

This live conversation will include Whoppi Goldberg and civil rights attorney, Bryan Stevenson. Panelists we know that will follow Goldberg and Stevenson include Taraji P. Henson, Gina Prince-Blythewood, Lee Daniels, Misan Sagay, Tarell Alvin McCraney, Dawn Porter, DeVon Franklin, and Debra Martin Chase.

All conversations can be found here.
