Advocate
    Creator of the #OscarsSoWhite trending hashtag
    Invented the hashtag during the 2015 awards season
    Hashtag went viral after the nominees for the following year were announced, including no actors of color (2016)
    Viral hashtag was covered by The New York Daily News, Forbes, Vanity Fair, and NPR
    She is a hashtag activist.
    Her name sounds like 'April Rain.'
    Her website is called Reign of April.
    Her original tweet was: '#OscarsSoWhite they asked to touch my hair.'
    The tweet sparked a movement many believed is predicated on encouraging quotas and tokenism over quality.
    She has practiced law for nearly twenty years.
    She was the managing editor of BroadwayBlack.com and the editor-at-large at Nu Tribe magazine.
    She was previously responsible for stopping a scheduled celebrity boxing match between George Zimmerman and DMX with the trending hashtag #StoptheFight.
    The OscarsSoWhite hashtag sparked a movement that successfully attained greater visibility for people of color in the film industry.
    In an article for Vanity Fair, she wrote: '[OscarsSoWhite] is not about quotas but about asking inclusive questions when staffing films—from the actors cast to the boom operators and craft-services teams hired. It is about operating outside of the same networks that have been used for years and instead providing opportunities to talented craftspeople from groups not usually included.'
