#MovementMondays Anthony Ramos is an American actor and singer of Puerto Rican descent. Born and raised by a single mother in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Ramos is not only an amazing performer but a real inspiration.  As a teen, Ramos ambitions lied primarily in baseball but he also enjoyed singing. With the help of his high school theater director who recognized his natural talent, Ramos got a full-ride scholarship to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NY.  After graduation, Ramos earned roles in some regional and touring musical productions including Grease,  In The Heights, and Damn Yankees.  In 2015, Ramos got his big break on Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway show Hamilton (as John Laurens & Philip Hamilton) that has changed his life in many ways. Since Hamilton, Ramos is definitely not throwing away his shot and also using his voice to help others. In 2017,  he reunited with Lin-Manuel Miranda for the song “Almost Like Praying” a release to benefit Hurricane Maria victims and also travelled to his family’s homeland, Puerto Rico, to help out anyway he could. Ramos can currently be seen as Mars Blackmon in Spike Lee’s Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It alongside the talented, DeWanda Wise. “There’s a lot of content out there that, unfortunately, I don’t feel is saying a lot,” he told Huffington Post. “This show talks about issues that are going on in New York and all over the world: sexual harassment, verbal abuse, physical abuse, gentrification, the one percent, the tax break, all sorts of things. It speaks for a lot of people who feel like they can’t speak up or don’t know what to say or don’t know how to express what they’re feeling or can’t quite define what they’re feeling. I’m proud to be a part of a piece of art that’s not only doing that but also giving people the courage to step out a little more and educate themselves on music, culture and political issues.” Ramos is set to appear in films ‪A Star Is Born ‬directed by Bradley Cooper later this year and ‪Godzilla‬: King of Monsters next year. From Bushwick to Broadway to the Big Screen...Ramos is killing it! I cannot be more proud to watch his journey! @anthonyramosofficial 🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷

This time last year, I was proud to help @LUNABar launch their #EqualPay initiative. #Ad I found it important to use my platform to bring awareness for the many women in my life that were being unfairly paid. Women, on average, are STILL paid 20% less than men for the same work, and for Black and Latina women it is even worse. So many factors, out of our control, contribute to the gender wage gap, but one thing women can do to help themselves move closer to pay parity is to negotiate. I am working on this action myself as I enter into new spaces. So as someone who wants to practice what they preach I feel very honored to help support the #LUNABar equal pay campaign this year as they work to empower women to advocate for pay equality through the power of negotiation.

#movementmondays Donald Glover is an American actor, writer, director, and producer.  He is also a Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, and rapper under the stage name Childish Gambino. In 2006, Glover graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in Dramatic Writing. At the young age of 23, Glover became a writer with occasional cameos on NBC’s sitcom 30 Rock.  He got his breakout role in 2009 on NBC’s Community. Since, Glover can be seen in films such as The Lazarus Effect, Magic Mike XXL, The Marian, and Spider-Man Homecoming. Later this year, he will be seen starring in Solo: A Star Wars Story and in 2019 his voice will be heard as Simba in the live action Lion King. Currently, Glover is the creator, writer, executive producer, occasional director of the critically acclaimed FX comedy-drama show Atlanta. In a recent profile in the New Yorker, a confident Glover exposed an honest truth that black comedy creators in Hollywood not only have to think they are the best—they also have to be the very best. TV executives still often see diversity as a break from the norm, which raises the stakes higher. “I knew what FX wanted from me,” Glover said. “They were thinking it’d be me and Craig Robinson”—the “Hot Tub Time Machine” actor—“horse-tailing around, and it’ll be kind of like ‘Community,’ and it’ll be on for a long time. I was Trojan-horsing FX. If I told them what I really wanted to do, it wouldn’t have gotten made.” Atlanta not only has broken many rules but it is also the most watched comedy in the network’s history. Glover has gone on to win multiple awards for the show including two Golden Globe Awards in 2017 for Best Television Series and Best Actor (Musical or Comedy). Also in 2017, Glover not only won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series but he made history by becoming the first black person to win a Emmy for the category of Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series. “I tell stories because that’s the best way of spreading information,” he said. “We’re all tricking and toying and playing with each other’s senses to affect this thing hidden inside our skulls.” Season 2 of Atlanta is airing on FX now!
