Black in Time: The Gilded Age, Bridgerton, & Beyond

This week, Brittany and Eric take on the increase of Black characters in period dramas, a genre that mostly known for its predominantly white casts. From The Gilded Age to Hamilton, they deconstruct what does and doesn't work about these portrayals with the help of Martine Powers, host of The Washington Post's "Post Reports” and period drama superfan. And in the second half of the episode, they chat with executive producer and director of The Gilded Age, Salli Richardson-Whitfield about The Gilded Age, her career and what's to come.
