Friday, October 24, 2008
New York, NY –
Politics and art have intersected a lot over the course of this election season. Think of Will.i.am’s tribute to Obama this spring, or the wave of political art exhibitions that have been up all over the city. The actress Sarah Jones makes her living cultivating diverse characters, and exploring connections between race and politics. She sat down with the Linguist John McWhorter and talked about what it means to sound black.
