Black interpreters at Colonial Williamsburg

This is a great film from Mondo Black about the role of African American interpreters at Colonial Williamsburg. Starting with considering what people will do for employment in the recession, this documentary asks: would you be willing to play a slave? 

I've written about Williamsburg before, and it has wrestled in the past with how to present the history of slavery for visitors.
