Stephan James, star of If Beale Street Could Talk and Amazon’s Homecoming, and his brother Shamier Anderson, who stars in season three of Amazon’s Goliath, have partnered with the Canada Media Fund to inspire a younger generation of diverse talent to move into the arts.

The pair’s mentorship group B.L.A.C.K. – Building A Legacy In Acting Cinema and Knowledge – has forged a partnership with the CMF’s Made campaign, which is designed to raise awareness for Canadian contributions in the entertainment industry and is being promoted heavily at the Toronto Film Festival.
