Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A gift that we can watch Franklin's powerful voice on full display

This film reveals the power of Franklin's voice and the ripple effect it has on those around her that have the good fortune of witnessing the power of her vocality and full body ability. It is a gift that we have this historical testament. It is also interesting to see how others try to make the film about them, but Franklin's grace does not waver and the moment she opens her wondrous mouth to sing, all others quickly fade by the wayside.
