Dear Culture

Black Movies We Love to Hate: B*A*P*S

Episode 80

Black American Princesses kicks off the Dear Culture series, dedicated to movies that Black people can’t agree on. Panama Jackson breaks down B*A*P*S with a critical eye to better understand if the movie starring Halle Berry and Natalie Desselle was mocking the culture or just a rags-to-riches story with a Black cast. Cultural critic and movie maker Brooke Obie joins the conversation to defend the film and share why she believes, unlike in the late 90s, Black content is shrinking.
