Earlier this month, the actress of 39 years, took to Instagram to encourage his disciples to see films by black filmmakers, including “Selma” and ” Mercy “.

“That said,” The Help “is a fictional story told through the point of view of a white character and has been created by mainly white storytellers,” she said. “All of us, we can go further. ”
“The Help” was written and directed by Tate Taylor — a white man — and follows a young white woman who is writing a book of stories of black maids employed by white families. The book that the movie was based on was written by Kathryn Stockett, also a white woman.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Howard was asked if she would be willing to star in “The Help” if it had been made today.

“No. But what I will say is: What I’ve seen, is that people who have the courage to say it. “With all due respect, I love this project, I don’t think you could be a filmmaker,” she admitted. “It is a very powerful thing to say. This is an important principle to take into account in order to make room for the real authentic storytellers. ”
As for why she encouraged fans to distract from his own movie, Howard said she did so simply because she felt that it was important to share his thoughts.
“In this transformation occurs, there is a new freedom of expression. I see other people — and the sense of myself – that it is less a matter of worrying about offending people and looking inside and saying, ” Why? What I’m really afraid, and this is just the building?’ “said the actress. “And so I posted it and don’t look back. ”
Viola Davis, who has also starred in the film, has also expressed his displeasure with the voice highlighted in the film.

“I just thought that, at the end of the day, that this was not the voice of the women of the household who were interviewed. I know [my character] Aibileen. I know [Octavia Spencer’s character] Minny. They are my grand-mother. They are my mother, ” Davis, 54, previously told The New York Times. “And I know that if you make a movie where the premise is, I want to know what it’s like to work for the whites and raise children, in 1963, I want to know how you really feel about it. I’ve never heard that in the course of the film. “
