Wes Jackson Weighs in on Stephen King’s Tweet about Diversity and Art to NECN

Director of the Business of Creative Enterprises program Wes Jackson shares his perspective on iconic New England author Stephen King’s controversial tweet on Tuesday regarding diversity and art and the recent Academy Award nominations, in which King wrote, “I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.”

Quite honestly, it was the blindness of white privilege sort of smacking you in the face. If you make no effort to watch a movie from Jordan Peele or other black directors, how can you possibly make the best decision?

Jackson’s comments appear in the text.
