So, for #SWRepMatters today, I'm just going to do a general overview on how well I think #StarWars has done in terms of #Representation in 2018 (including releases in late 2017), and how I want it to do better in 2019 and beyond. First, the good: 1/
For me personally, the shining example of an amazing, well written, and compelling character of color was Iden Versio. @MitchyD #Battlefront2 and @ChristieGolden's #Inferno Squad gifted us with a complex, multifaceted, badass brown Asian woman who faces moral quandaries and 2/

You have heard about our #AI Code and #global summit, but take a look at some of our other recommendations in the #LordsAIreport #justkeepreading: ow.ly/DnC930jyxZT

1/ A thread on #ownvoices and #representation as well as allyship, guests, holding babies, writing the other, and assorted issues dealing with POC characters/stories being written by white folks. Nothing super new, just bringing nuanced notions together, reflecting on my views.
2/ America desperately needs a LOT more #ownvoices books. That should be our priority. I've even advocated for a sort of #affirmativeAction in publishing. Agents and editors should be ACTIVELY seeking out POC talent, recruiting, nurturing, publishing.
3/ Especially in kids lit. Only 25% of books for kids feature protags of color. Only 6% are actually written by authors of color. Both of those numbers MUST CHANGE, but the second is the biggest problem. Writers of color need to be the main folks writing these stories.
