"Cinema in Noir" (Episode 8)

If you missed today's episode of "Cinema in Noir," you missed one lively, hot-button show. We discussed "passing" in Hollywood, specifically we we ask whether stars like Rashida Jones, Wentworth Mille and Maya Rudolph get a certain "pass" because they don't play "the typical black role."

We also discuss whether black film critics have a "duty" to specifically endorse black film, and what it means when we don't. Lastly we talk about how some black directors must battle the intimidation factor to get respect in Hollywood.

Missed the show? Listen to a recap of today's episode below:
