Actress Amandla Stenberg is heading to film school to fulfil her dreams of developing movies for minority actors.
The Hunger Games star has enrolled as a student at New York University film school.
"ur lookin at an NYU film student," she wrote on Instagram.com.
Stenberg has been vocal about diversity issues in Hollywood and recently spoke about her desire to create roles for minority women.
"I think actions speak louder than words," she told NYMag.com. "I'm really passionate about film. I want to be a film director and create roles for women of colour because there is such a glaring lack of adequate roles."
She caused a storm of controversy last year (15) when she accused pop stars like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry of "adopting" black culture in their music videos.
"Miley Cyrus twerks and uses black women as props," she pointed out, "and then, in 2014, in one of her videos called This Is How We Do, Katy Perry uses Ebonics and hand gestures and eats watermelons while wearing cornrows before cutting inexplicably to a picture of Aretha Franklin.
"As you can see, cultural appropriation was rampant... What would America be like if we loved black people as much as we love black culture?"
Amandla, who played Rue in the first Hunger Games film, made a video, titled Don't Cash Crop My Cornrows, in which she accused the pop stars of using black culture to gain popularity, as part of a high school history project.
