018: James and the Giant Critique with James Bland

By Kent Johnson // Gray Graft Media

On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by James Bland (@jrbland), the Emmy nominated actor, creator, showrunner and star of the hit digital drama series Giants to chat about Black art and our community’s duty to support. We discuss whether or not we have to unabashedly support Black media, if he feels his projects are supported by the community, and what the future holds for Black creativity.
