Kasi Lemmons on black representation in Hollywood and the 'shocking' story of a studio exec who wanted Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman

"It's hard to believe, right? And quite shocking on one level," says Lemmons, who is also a film professor at New York University. "But on another level, we see that all the time, and we've seen it pretty recently, in some ways that have been pretty tone deaf."

Gracious Queen I hope you do come back to destee...I see last time you were online here was 6 years ago on my birthday...I was probably probably taking a puff on that good 'ol stuff at the time...maybe sitting back sipping Coffee, Tea, or Wine...I just had to go back and read your previous posts.
