  • Butterfly in the Sky, a documentary about the show Reading Rainbow, will hit select AMC theaters starting March 17 and become available for streaming April 30 (Variety).

  • Some three-plus years after publishers promised to diversify the overwhelmingly white industry, a survey has found that not much progress has been made (The New York Times).
