On this episode of Represent, Slate culture writer Aisha Harris talks to filmmaker, educator, and former Black Panther Jamal Joseph about his new film, Chapter and Verse. And this week in Guess Who’s Coming to Oscar, we talk the 1957 Oscar-winning film Sayonara with Phil Yu of the Angry Asian Man blog and Yoko Kawaguchi, author of Butterfly’s Sisters: The Geisha in Western Culture.
