This week on Black on Black Cinema, the crew returns to announce the next film, "American Fiction." The film follows a novelist (Jeffrey Wright) who's fed up with the establishment profiting from Black entertainment uses a pen name to write a book that propels him into the heart of the hypocrisy and madness he claims to disdain. The random topic for discussion this week is about the singer Lizzo making her views known on wanting a return to cultural gatekeeping when it comes to stopping white people from using Black language. We discuss Lizzo's point and the reasons why things are the way they are, and what the ramifications are of promoting gatekeeping...good and bad.
