“Ask a Slave” is a new webseries I stumbled across earlier today. It’s my understanding that it’s inspired by actual questions the actress Azie Dugney heard while working as a historical re-enactor on the popular historic site, George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
Now before you go shaking your head, let me just say it’s well done. The writing, comedic timing, everything. It’s telling in that I’m sure the folks that asked these questions probably weren’t trying to be funny. They really just have no clue about Slavery ( both before and after asking such ignorant questions). Side note, this is how it’s done Russell Simmons!!!! – devoya
