For decades, Daffy Duck was the only black actor getting any consistent work in Hollywood. For just as long, producers claimed that black screenwriters could only write comedies. Today, the landscape has changed, or has it? "Wakanda" opportunities are available in Hollywood for those of color today? Can we truly go black to the future . . . before we go black to the past? Panelists include Reggie Hudlin (Milestone Media, Black Panther), Denys Cowan (Milestone Media, The Boondocks), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek, Heroes), Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager, Spaceballs), Kevin Grevioux (Underworld, I, Frankenstein), Professor Adilifu Nama (San Diego State University, Superheroes Decoded), Professor Ajani Brown (San Diego State University), and La Quia Howard (Kemet, I Choose 2 Be Me). Moderated by Jimmy Diggs (Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space 9).
