Continuing our month-long series of episodes focusing on work by Black creators, on today’s podcast we’re taking a look at JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH. Directed by Shaka King, the Sundance 2021 premiering film has earned both critical acclaim and scrutiny. Can a Hollywood movie adequately tell a story about political radicals? Does JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH do justice to Fred Hampton? Listen in to hear our thoughts.
