Code Switching & Preview to Episode 83

May 18, 2016

This week on Black on Black Cinema, the next film is announced, The Butler. Directed by Lee Daniels, the 2013 semi-biographical film follows Cecil Gains as a butler in the White House from the Eisenhower administration until the Reagan administration, with the backdrop of the Civil Rights movement. Our random topic of the week is on code switching, when we do it, how we do it, and is it needed.
