David Alan Grier Has Created a ‘Massa Class’ For Black Actors

By

Recently on A&E’s Black And White – a talk show that explores racial politics through a no-holds-barred comedic lens – “legendary actor and living African American” David Alan Grier was asked: “Do you feel like it’s gotten harder or easier over time for black actors in Hollywood?”

“It is easier than when I started,” he says, and when asked to dispense some pearls of wisdom from this 30+ years in the biz, he debuted a clip from “David Alan Grier’s ‘Massa Class’”, a tongue-in-cheek tutorial for aspiring black actors.

Black And White – airing at 10:30pm Wednesdays on A&E – is hosted by standups Christian Finnegan and Sherrod Small (who co-hosts the Race Wars podcast with fellow provocateur Kurt Metzger).
