    And The Emmy/Oscar goes to....

    in Entertainment

    This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will discuss the plight of the black actor and actress in Hollywood. Did Viola Davis hit the nail on the head at the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Do actors of color have less opportunity than their white counterparts? After all these years and a black president in the white house, why are we still dealing with unequal opportunity in Hollywood? How do we change this? Is it that America, including black folks, don't care to see blacks on tv or the big screen? We've invited some black actors to the show to help us understand this. You won't want to miss a minuite of this. Lets talk about it here on The Fruit.
