Processing how art about Black life is often, both, too much and not enough - at the same. Join me as I discuss Amazon's new series "Them." I did my best to make it spoiler free, but feel free to circle back to this discussion AFTER you watch, if you don't want to know anything about the show. That said, the discussion is a general one about nuance and responsibility as creators.
Please chime in to the discussion in the comments...even if you watch the recording later. I'll respond.
