EXCLUSIVE PODCAST: Filmmaker Haile Gerima left Ethopia for the US where he studied acting and ultimately found a voice in film, becoming a leading member of the "LA Rebellion" film movement.

Today, Germina joins Elvis Mitchell in a discussion about cultural usurpation and historical discrimination in Hollywood.
