Radio Hour: Evan Kindley and Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn
First, Janice discusses the documentary film she is producing on women horn players; and then two recent articles she wrote: one about representation of people of color in Hollywood films (with a focus on a project in development about the Persian poet Rumi with Leonardo DiCaprio slated to play the muslim scholar); the second about the relationship of people of mixed race to Black American political and cultural discourse.
Then, Evan Kindley discusses his book, Questionnaire, a delightful study of the history of the form fromits origins to its most popular contemporary incarnation — as irresistible click bait.
