-----
In this episode, Lavetta introduces hip-hop artist Viva (Chinese, born 1995), who incorporates traditional Chinese elements into her music. The hosts discuss her upbringing, musical influences, and career trajectory. Specifically, they discuss the controversy surrounding Viva's use of blackface during a performance. Next, Miriam introduces actress and screenwriter Janet Green (British, 1908–1993) known for her progressive screenplays, and how she tackled controversial topics such as racism and homosexuality in her films during a time when they were considered taboo. They discuss her work on the film Sapphire, which tackles racial tension in 1950s London, and which was groundbreaking for its unsentimental portrayal of the experiences of black people. They discuss another film Green wrote, Victim, which was the first mainstream examination of homosexuality and shed light on the persecution and unfair laws faced by gay men. The hosts discuss how despite the risks involved in addressing social issues and religious intolerance, Green's work was recognized and nominated for awards.
