Is there already a thread for this? I couldn’t find one. If there is feel free to merge this. Has anyone watched this? It is absolutely amazing. Funny, heartwarming, smart, and so informative about a history many know little about. I loved it.
This dropped on Netflix today. I won’t spoil but I enjoyed it. People have to remember it’s a dramatization. I thought they addressed the intersectionality of sexism, racism and colorism very well, without demeaning Madame Walker and her ingeninuity. I also appreciated that they gave Octavia Spencer (an appropriate actress to play the character) fine ass Blair Underwood as a husband and they were shown to have an active sex life.
I found this podcast really fun today if anyone is interested. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-history-chicks/id415983183?i=1000468717991
