ABOUT THE FILM: Naomi Campbell called her “Ma” but to many she’s simply Bethann. A pioneering model, agent and activist, Bethann Hardison is a pivotal figure in the fight for racial diversity in fashion. In her lifetime, she has seen the pendulum swing toward and away from the Black model. At every setback, she spoke up and rallied her colleagues and clients in the industry to advance change. Now in her 70s, the Brooklyn native is in the midst of writing her memoir, taking stock of her own legacy at a moment when the fashion industry is shaken — once again — by the Black Lives Matter movement.
