Jar Jar’s Long Hollywood History | The Redemption of Jar Jar Binks

This week, we’re sharing an episode of The Redemption of Jar Jar Binks, a new podcast from the TED Audio Collective. It’s a six-part series that reckons with one of the most divisive characters in cinematic history, the online hatred he inspired, and what we can learn from it today. In this episode, host Dylan Marron goes beyond the fandom backlash and goes into some of the deeper questions about the character. Why did many see Jar Jar as a racial stereotype? What does that say about Jar Jar’s place in the world of Star Wars and Hollywood history overall? And how did all of the frenzy affect the actor who brought the character to life?

From The Class of 1989: Ladies First and Last

Please enjoy another episode from our miniseries The Class of 1989! 1989 was not the year of the Black woman in film. The Color Purple was one of the few feature films in the 80s that centered on Black women, and it wouldn't be until 1992 that a Black woman would get theatrical distribution directing a film about Black women. Just like Anita Hill is often credited for the 1992 election being deemed 'the year of the woman,' what seeds were planted in '89 that inspired or provoked Black women directors in the next decade?

Introducing of Some of My Best Friends Are...

This week, we're sharing an episode of Some of My Best Friends Are...  The show is hosted by Khalil Muhammad and Ben Austen, two best friends who grew up together on the South Side of Chicago in the '80s. Khalil is Black; Ben is white. They invite listeners into their conversations about the absurdities and intricacies of race in America. Mixing anecdotes, entertaining storytelling, and thoughtful debate, Some of My Best Friends Are... helps listeners make sense of our deeply divided country. In this episode, they look back at two classic Interracial Buddy Films and their dynamic in pop culture: 48 Hours and Lethal Weapon. They ask: How did these films, and others like them, shape a generation of moviegoers' views on racism and law enforcement? What did they say about being white and Black men of the time?
