Video: The History and People of Underground

by | March 7, 2016 | Comments

RT talked to Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge, and Christopher Meloni from Underground, about how, although it’s a show about history, it’s surprisingly modern, and also a rocket ride. And how the cast wants very much to honor the characters and time depicted, and make them real people brought to life. Check it out!

    Oh yay.
    Looks like some good race-bait entertainment for smug white liberal pleasure.

    Surprisingly modern indeed.
    Black people have been enslaved playing victim for a white liberal profit for the last 50 years.
    They need a new underground railroad from under the boot of white liberals and out of modern plantation ghetto’s were they keep them.

    Jurnee Smollett was on Full House, she played Michelle’s best friend.

    Love that show, as well as Fuller House.
