Laura Harrier & Aja Naomi King Talk Representation in Hollywood at Teen Vogue Summit

Aja Naomi King and Laura Harrier pose together while attending the 2018 Teen Vogue Summit on Friday (June 1) at The New School in New York City.

The actresses were joined by Orange Is the New Black‘s Diane Guerrero and Dear White People‘s Logan Browning on a discussion about representation in Hollywood.

“I’m close to activism because I’m a black woman in America,” Laura, who is best known for her work in Spider-Man: Homecoming, said.

“It’s the little things when you have a moment to do something that feels more real or natural,” Aja added. She cited an example from How to Get Away with Murder when her character Michaela Pratt put a head wrap on before going to bed. “If I’m going to go to bed, I wanna put a head wrap on because that’s what I would do, especially if I’m comfortable in my relationship with someone. And for a lot of women online that was a big deal to them, to see that, because it feels honest. You’re seeing something that reflects yourself.”

Dear Evan Hansen stars Laura Dreyfuss and Phoenix Best also attended the summit that day.
