MIXLY Recommends: Ask A Slave – MMXLII

MIXLY Recommends: Ask A Slave


 
This new web series takes the form of a conventional Q & A, but the series itself is anything but conventional. A house slave working in George Washington’s Mount Vernon fields questions from an often surprisingly ignorant modern audience. The results aren’t just hilarious, they’re surprisingly informative – and not only about the past. Creator and star Azie Mira Dungey has based the series on real interactions she had with tourists “while portraying a slave character” at Mt. Vernon. The ignorance Lizzie Mae encounters isn’t just a relic of the past – it’s a reminder of how far we still have to go. There are just two episodes out so far, but we’re looking forward to more!
