Reed Hastings has been involved in education reform since the late 1990s, including backing charter schools — a subject that has polarized the education community.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and his wife, Patty Quillin, on Wednesday announced that they are committing $120 million to the United Negro College Fund and two historically Black colleges as part of the fight for racial justice spurred by the killing of George Floyd.

“The times are the most stressed, the most painful, that we’ve ever seen in our lives,” Hastings said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC’s Craig Melvin. “But out of that pain can come some opportunity, too. And maybe this will be the moment things change.”
