<

Amandla Steinberg has been named among Time Magazine’s Next Generation Leaders.

In an interview with Mariah Smith, the 19 year old actress spoke on a variety of issues ranging from politics to social media.

See excerpts below.

On Having A Spotlight On Everything She Does:

I’m always walking this precarious line of having my actions over-politicized, but at the same time, there’s political intention in the actions.

On How Social Media Has Helped To Promote Diversity:

When social media first started popping up, it was really exciting because for the first time, we weren’t dependent on white institutions to afford us platforms of representation. A few years later, you see the effects in Hollywood, in the diversity that’s finally being portrayed onscreen.

On Her Role In The Movie, ‘The Hate You Give’:

It was a reflection in confrontation and grieving and finding closure, the trauma was really intense. It didn’t necessarily scare me because I understood the significance of it.
