Donald Glover Hires All-Black Writing Staff


Last week Donald Glover dropped the trailer for his new scripted series 'Atlanta' on FX [click here if you missed that].'

In a recent interview Donald admits Atlanta's entire writing staff is Black, which apparently is unheard of in the industry...

Glover candidly tells Vulture,
“I wanted to show white people, you don’t know everything about black culture.” 
“I know it’s very easy to feel that way. Like, I get it, you can hear about the Nae Nae the day it comes out. You follow Hood Vines, and you have your one black friend and you think they teach you everything, I get it that Deshaun said that black people love … ni**a, I hate Deshaun!”
Donald also reveals that the majority of the staff are Atlanta natives.

Read the full interview here.

Atlanta premieres on FX September 6, 2016.

and not a "baby daddy" (I hope).

@5:04 the problem is having an "all black staff" is about as common as Black dads dropping their kids off at school in the morning...

I would hope to see some Black professionals in the show, but I'll check it out.
