Listen to Monique’s First “Sleepy Hollow” Periscope!

If you regularly read COLOR, then you’ll know that I recently had a Sleepy Hollow Periscope event Friday. The jist of the event consisted of me discussing my views on the first episode as well as some behind-the-scenes stuff that’s really got in my craw over the summer. I didn’t actually mean to discuss that, but when the camera’s on you, you never know what’s going to come out of your mouth.

For my first one, I think I did well. However, I have learned a lot, such as to have Persicope turned onto “autosave.” Because of that, I had big issues getting the video out of Periscope and onto COLOR. After several attempts, I decided the easiest thing to do would be to just get the audio, so I did.

You’ll here moments when I’m pausing or saying something that doesn’t seem like it’s in line with my train of thought; that’s because I was responding to people leaving comments, so bear with any non-sequitur moments that might arise. (You might also have to blast the volume up.)

Thanks to everyone who did participate live and watched on the 24-hour replay. People have been asking for another one, so I’ll make sure to get the next one scheduled as soon as possible. There are a lot of changes and additions coming to the site, so bear with me, since things like Periscopes (and recaps) are getting shifted around and altered and stuff.

So take a listen, and write what you think I should discuss next time in the comments section below!

    Could you talk about television in the age of the WoC. I’ve noticed a trend in a few genre shows of pairing a Black woman with a White man as partners on shows and I was wondering how this got started and what it means. It reminds me of the 80s period where Black and White men kept getting paired up in movies after the success of 48 Hours.

    Is this a new period for WoC on TV? Will it last or will TV forget all about in ten years. the way Hollywood always forgets every ten years, or so, that it used to make movies with lots of women in them?

    And with more WoC being paired up in these shows ,will we see more Interracial relationships, like in Scandal? And what impact might that have on young women of color? Because a lot of times, people don’t know something is an option until they see it modeled in TV and movies.
