I SEE U’s premiere episode welcomes Oscar-winning filmmaker, Kevin Willmott, Duke University researcher, Dr. Adriene Lentz Smith and film producer, Brandy Byers. We’ll reveal unexplored takeaways from a film Willmott directed and released in 2020 called, “THE 24th.” The movie takes place in 1917, where soldiers from the Army’s all-Black 24th Infantry Regiment become involved in a deadly riot in Houston. Throughout the course of the film, soldiers kept putting each other down and calling each other names. Guests talk candidly about the notion of colorism within the Black community and why so many African-Americans tend to discriminate and criticize each other. The episode will also grapple with why some White Americans tend to avoid discussions dealing with racism and prefer to look ahead and not dwell into the past.
