Blackface

Hosted by Vanessa Echols

In this episode we take a trip through history as we unpack the fascination, the controversy and the hot topic of blackface. Why is it offensive? How is it that in 2019, some people still don't understand why it's offensive, insulting and hurtful. And how do we try to make sure the next generation learns the lesson. Joining us: Dr. Fon Gordon, a historian from The University of Central Florida; Rhetta Hussein, journalist for The Black Press and social activist Jenna Wright.
