Biography

April practiced law for over 15 years, but her life took an unexpected turn when the lack of people of color in the 2015 Oscars nominations compelled her to tweet a now-famous hashtag: #OscarsSoWhite. She has now partnered with Overture Global, a New York-based media company, to launch Ensemble, a digital content studio to accelerate opportunities around content and development for people of color. April is a sought-after advocate, consultant, writer, speaker and interviewer on the representation of marginalized communities in the arts, tech and entertainment. Her work includes collaborations with Procter & Gamble, Twitter, Google, AARP, HBO and more.
