Brian Tyree Henry On The ‘N’ Word, Black/Latino Culture And ‘Paper Boi’

10.31.2016 | By |

On the tenth episode of my Highly Relevant podcast, I had a chance to chat with Brian Tyree Henry, a.k.a. Paper Boi on FX’s Atlanta. We spoke mainly about diversity in the arts, but we did get to the nitty gritty on the prolific usage as of late of the word ‘nigga” in television and film (music has been like that from the beginning). Aren’t we trying to eliminate the word from our vocabulary? We also conversed on his pal Donald Glover’s casting in the new Star Wars movie, his first encounter with him, his character Paper Boi, the show’s appeal, his view on Latino culture, Broadway’s lack of minority storytelling and why Gina Rodriguez is so hot to him. Read on or listen to the interview! Read More

The nominations for the 70th annual Tony Awards announcement were a historic moment for Broadway and for diversity this morning – Puerto Rican icon Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton scored a record-setting 16 nominations. On the play side, Long Day’s Journey Into Night had 7 nominations, most by a play this year.

Years ago, one Latino nominated for a Tony was historic, now 3 of them are. Times are a changin’. Read More
