AFTRA & Beverly Hills/Hollywood NAACP Launch Historic Partnership

Posted May 26, 2011

In the interest of enhancing a strategic relationship that has spanned decades, the AFTRA & Beverly Hills/Hollywood NAACP Entertainment Partnership was created to find new and creative ways to further their mutual goals of equality, diversity and the depiction of the American scene in entertainment media. They subsequently launched their Profiles of Color Series to create an ongoing platform of panel discussions featuring entertainment professionals covering a wide range of issues.

On Monday evening, May 23, the inaugural evening of this Series was presented.  “GENERATIONS: In Their Own Words” was produced in honor of the May Mother’s Day Holiday, and took place in the AFTRA Los Angeles Frank Maxwell Boardroom.

Featuring a conversation among African American mothers and their daughters who have successfully navigated the entertainment world, the evening was moderated by AFTRA member Anna Maria Horsford (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Bernie Mac Show”) and featured AFTRA members Marla Gibbs (“The Jeffersons,” “227”) and her daughter Angela Gibbs (“Nip/Tuck,” “In the Heat of the Night”), and Judy Pace (“Peyton Place,” “Sanford and Son”) with daughter Julia Pace Mitchell (“The Young and the Restless,” “Law and Order”).

During the two-hour educational and often comedic discussion, the mother and daughter panelists shared their experiences on AFTRA-covered television programs such as “The Jeffersons,” “227” and “Cold Case.” They also discussed the significant role of their relationship in their careers.
