In The Moment... February 24, 2017 Show 037 Hour 1

This weekend marks the 89th Academy Awards. Before we break out the snacks, we take deeper look at language in the movies and how it is used to identify people and, sometimes, to discriminate. On Monday, Lindsey Clouse presents "Dialect Discrimination from Disney to Django: How Hollywood Uses Language to Reinforce Racial Stereotypes" as part of the Black Hills State University speaker series. We talk with Lindsey about dialect, directors, and discrimination.
