@fogoftruth Episode 805: THEY’VE GOTTA HAVE US and ALWAYS IN SEASON

Joining Bart and Chris as guest host for a robust discussion of the three-part 2018 BBC documentary series They’ve Gotta Have Us, just recently released on Netflix, is film critic Roxana Hadadi. We discuss that program’s approach to the history of African American and Black British actors and directors in Hollywood. Then, Bart interviews director Jacqueline Olive about her film Always in Season, which explores America’s tortured legacy of lynching (we previously reviewed the documentary on episode 705). It’s a brutal subject, but one that cannot be ignored. As always, you can find the audio of the episode on our “episodes” page, on Apple Podcasts and other sites.
