“You have to chip away at it. [It’s] creating our own work, but that’s easier said than done. It’s not as easy as people think it is. If it doesn’t fall into the laps of the right people, the people that will give it an ear…funding and producers are necessary and there is a serious issue on that side of the table…I don’t know if it is a lack of the work being good as much as it is people not believing in it because it came from a particular color.”
We talk with Felicia Boswell to talk about how she relates to all of the fierce, passionate characters she plays, why we should tell our stories in absolute truth, and how stories set in the past aren’t all that different from today’s reality.
