It’s not that I need to see heroes or doctors or lawyers or Tuskegee Airmen as opposed to drug dealers or absent fathers or crack addicted sex-workers–or maids.
Join Martha Southgate, Karen Hunter, and me on Esther Armah’s radio show on WBAI 99.5FM tomorrow at 7:30am EST. We’ll be discussing the new movie The Help.
And so, for those of y’all who don’t regularly read this blog, I’d thought I’d introduce you to the real me.:-)
It’s not the story of Black domestics that I resent–or that the novel the movie is based on was written by a White woman. What I resent are the tone-deaf, historically inaccurate depictions.
