Director Devin E. Haqq (“Ambition’s Debt“) has written an illuminating article for Huffington Post on the subject of minority representation in contemporary film, “Black Characters Matter“:

‘By re-imagining the bodies and voices of these historical white figures as people of color, Miranda sends the message to all viewers, both persons of color and white folks, that the story of America belongs to all of us.’
