On this special extended episode of Conversations, writer/director Kevin Willmott is our guest to discuss his latest film, Destination: Planet Negro.
Willmott, who is known for his biting satirical films centered around race in his earlier film, C.S.A: The Confederate States of America, has crafted an interesting comedy with social ramifications with Destination: Planet Negro.
In the face of Jim Crow-era violence and intimidation, many African-Americans living in southern states headed to northern cities, hoping to find new homes free from oppression.
In his latest film, Destination: Planet Negro, they leave Earth entirely.
He’ll discuss all of that and more on this episode of Conversations beginning at 1pm.
