Sunday, February 28, Actor/Comedian/Director CHRIS ROCK will host the 88th ACADEMY AWARDS... his second time hosting the prestigious awards ceremony!!!
However; 2016 is a little different,
2016 marks the SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR that there are NO PEOPLE Of COLOR nominated for any of the four acting categories, which in 2015, inspired the Social Media Hashtag #ALLWHITEOSCARS, and for 2016, #OSCARSSOWHITE.
CHRIS ROCK discusses all of this and so much more as the Cover Story for the March 2016 issue of ESSENCE Magazine,
Check out his #SHONDALAND inspired OSCARS promo.
