PERSPECTIVES ON THE MOVEMENT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE:
Corporate Campaigns Reflecting Afro Perspectives on Discrimination & Racial Inequality:
P&G continues its series of thought-provoking films on bias and racism with “The Choice,” an invitation to the often-silent majority to become allies, advocates and activists to end racial inequality.
The film inspires individuals to take action to create the world we all want to live in by challenging them to move beyond their comfort zones to Read, Listen, Donate, Plan, March, Vote, Speak Out, Step In, Step Up.
The film is accompanied by an extensive web-based resource at pg.com/takeonrace that gives people a place to start.

Created in 2019, “The Look” uses historical references and contemporary stories to highlight the bias experienced by Black men in America.
The film helps to build empathy, change perspectives, prompt personal introspection, and bring people together for conversation. Produced by Saturday Morning with Anthony Mandler and Malik Sayeed, the film is used as an educational tool at institutions across the country.
A discussion guide and background on the inspiration for the film can be found at www.talkaboutbias.com.
Originally debuted in 2017, “The Talk” highlights the painful, but necessary conversations Black parents have with their children to help prepare them for prejudices they may face growing up in a society that judges them based on the color of their skin.
Directed by Malik Vitthal and produced together with BBDO and Egami Group, the film received numerous accolades including a Daytime Emmy Award.
