The Political Misfits Podcast: A Conversation About ‘One Night in Miami’

Late last month I was approached by a friend to contribute my thoughts about the Denzel Washington-produced Netflix film “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” on the Washington, DC based Political Misfits podcast. It was a fun experience, volleying back and forth with host Bob Schlehuber about the nuances of the characters and the political meaning behind the August Wilson play-turned-film. Earlier this week, I was invited back to the program to discuss “One Night in Miami,” which also happens to be a play that was transformed into an undeniably captivating film, directed by Regina King and written by the play’s author, Kemp Powers. Another fun experience placing the film’s–and characters’–importance in political perspective with the hosts. Below is a link to this week’s appearance. Please use this link to listen, and while I welcome you to listen to the entire two hours, note that the conversation about “One Night in Miami” begins at 1 hour 29 minutes. Leave a comment here to let me know your thoughts about the film, and the segment. Enjoy.
