Many attending the Golden Globes were wearing black to protest sexual harassment.

Susan Sarandon will bring Rosa Clemente, an organiser, political commentator and journalist who campaigns for media justice and voter engagement among youth of colour.

Watson's guest will be Marai Larasi, the executive director of Imkaan, a black feminist network organization based in the United Kingdom. King was also the recipient of the Presidential Medal Of Freedom and is also the founder of the Billie Jean King Leadership initiative.
