This week on the Film at Lincoln Center Podcast, we’re featuring a Q&A from Film at Lincoln Center on Liesl Tommy’s Respect with screenwriter Tracey Scott Wilson, moderated by Emil Wilbekin, former editor of Vibe, Essence and founder of Native Son, a platform created to inspire and empower Black Gay Men.
Following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, Respect is the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice, starring Jennifer Hudson, Forest Whitaker, Mary J Blige, and more.
