With the #OscarsSoWhite campaign and increased calls for inclusion riders, Hollywood is beginning to more closely consider how people of color are represented in the industry. University of Georgia assistant professor of sociology and African American studies Maryann Erigha joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how decisions made behind the scenes affect what audiences see on the screen. Her new book is called “The Hollywood Jim Crow: The Racial Politics of the Movie Industry” (NYU Press).
