Mondo Black is a series of interviews and travelogues providing glimpses into the unique and inspiring realms that black American life occupies in the new millennium. The series visits some of today’s most creative minds and traverses a wide cross-section of subject matter to bring the diversity of the modern black experience into sharp relief.

Episode One: Black Employment goes to Colonial Williamsburg and asks, “Just who are these people getting paid to play slaves in 2011?” Mondo Black visits the scholars, researchers, and historical reenactors who bring to life an authentic, often painful, depiction of slavery in America.
