Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
Guest Host: Marc Fisher
February marks the complicated 100 year anniversary of the first full-length feature film screened in the U.S. In 1915, D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation” pioneered a range of cinematic storytelling techniques; more difficult is the film’s racist, revisionist Civil War story. We explore the legacy of that film and how the film industry has addressed race in the century since.
- Monica White Ndounou Professor, drama, dance, film and media, as well as Africana and American studies at Tufts University.
- Godfrey Cheshire Film critic, journalist and filmmaker.
