Guys have filled this entire interview with some of the best advice. But if you were to look back on your forty one years of marriage and forty five years of knowing each other forty four years of knowing each other. What is the one one piece of advice. The best piece that you have either been given or would give about relationships warren. Oh gosh one. Piece of advice marl. You've given so many. I'm curious yeah. Well what do you think chiefs. Thanks for throwing the ball to me. I think you kick that can down the road. Don't make everything a solemn high mass you move beyond whatever is troubling you at the moment is not going to change the orbits of the stars or the earth. And you're going to move forward. You're going to feel a lot less emotional about this tomorrow right. Then you do tonight or today and i'm a lot of people told us enough. People said this that it even it stuck even in my brain and you are not going to change each other. You are not going to do that. And when we were first together. I would say the first twenty years of our marriage. We fought every time. We traveled. Because i take way too much luggage and i will admit it. I take too much luggage. But i can't help it. I simply cannot decide when we're leaving. I i know. I need six shoes. I don't know why. But i gotta have this favor this that mr like fun and sexy this same this for cobblestones his parachute by water in got all these shoes and he would fight with main carry on the whole time in the car on the way to the airport he would be saying that the driver us realize that this we're going away for like ten days. We have six suitcases and the tips. I mean we got on the plane. I was out of the baggage guy who could care less if the baggage guy. Do you believe all these bags of going away for ten days and he did it did it. And he did it and he would make himself miserable and then i was miserable the whole day way on the plane and then one day sometime twenty years ago. I don't even remember. He stopped doing that. He's finally said. What did you say you told me you said what you said. I know this is crazy. I can't get her sound. Yeah i knew that. I was not going to change. I this thing. That was making me crazy. So i kick. That can down the road. I i finally moved on to worry about something else. And i think that is probably the best advice. You are not going to change each other so accommodate it. I mean unless it hurts. You was it's hurting you. You know a let it go and what's your name. Viola davis said she said your marriage doesn't start when you walk down the out your marriage starts when you're sitting across your spouse at breakfast and he does this thing that you really can't stand and you have. I am not going to be able to live with this and then you say to yourself. Hey i'm going to have to live with this. This is who he is. I love him. I'm gonna have to take this into and that's the truth is otherwise it's just a fight all the time because he is not you you are not him and it's never gonna switch where he is you in your and it never gonna switch. I think that's the best advice i love that. That's gold. fill a professional question for you. How do you compare podcasting to your your talk show. Do you enjoy it well. This is easier. Because i'm with herself here. I mean i. You know when you're alone you've gotta you know and you're juggling. You gotta catch all the ball so this is a lot easier. Because i'm with miss.

Strong, Black, and Hot Enough To Give You Second Degree Burns

"Lack women oprah beyond saying and all your favorite reaction means. I've heard people say they like their women like they like their coffee. Strong black hot enough to give you second degree burns. Careful what you wish for darius but the thing is not all black women are strong and even the ones that are strong aren't just that we doors open for us to especially with someone with biceps like michael jordan. Ads like michael jordan. Hare like michael b jordan but unfortunately a strong black woman stereotype is rained in american culture. It has a long history. About as old as morgan freeman and batty white combined now you may be wondering what is a strong black woman is the idea that black women are emotionally resilient naturally selfless to browns ask for help and can succeed with no resources so basically every care to play by viola davis. The irony is the strong black woman. Stereotype was started by black women to combat all the negative ones the in the aftermath of slavery there were really only to stereotypes of black women. You were either from sex temperatures jacksonville or a man who was just there to smother people in booze in response black suffragette mary. Church terrell point strong black woman motto listing as we climb and i get what she was going for butt lift as we climb even bodybuilders. Don't do both at the same time. You expect a black woman to do more than swertz nigger in his prime but overtime society shrank of black woman down to just her strikes and the popular conception now is that black women can bear and overcome any birth. We see all over our culture in movies like the color purple who my life. And how can we forget ghost. We're whoopi goldberg literally has to let a white man. U's her body to rub foreheads with his fiancee. Even when black women only have one line strong as hell move you will be moved. Damn at least let her say hello. Let's all say what's wrong with being perceived as strong. Isn't it a good thing. No not if black women destroy their mental and physical health trying to live up to it and not people think black women are so strong they make them do all the work on their own. Look stacey abrams. She helped democrats win georgia and before you knew it. Using active vaccine distribution the new york. Subway and kim and guy is marriage. The stereotype even reaches the doctor's office. Black women are less likely to be properly diagnosed. They have a much higher maternal mortality rate. And they're less likely to be believed about their symptoms and pay so a black woman basically has to be a doctor to know everything that's going on with her body and then convinced another doctor that that's what's happening. I was in. a car. Accident lacerations and internal bleeding a morphine drip and prep surgery stack. We'll get you a couple of bandaids. you'll be fine. What's so the next time you see a black woman struggling at work or trying to lift the box help her. Don't just stand there like you're about to see wonder woman in action in fact if you're in the new york area moving this week and i could use some help moving my couch because i'll be damned if i'm going to back lifting my own couch.

Cicely Tyson, her memoir just out, was active to the end

"This was not the news I was expecting to share with you. This is not how I was expecting the beginning of the show to start today as you just heard. Great actor Cicely Tyson died yesterday. She was 96. I spoke to her just a few days ago. You might have heard us talk on Tuesday. It was the day her memoir came out. It's called just as I am. I was saying to someone like Yesterday. I think one of the senior producers of the show does like how profoundly moved I was by Cicely Tyson. By her perspective, her presence, especially at 96. Also like her gratitude. You know, I complain about stuff all the time and to hear her go at the end of the interview. The last thing she said to me was Tom. I am so grateful For this moment. In time we talked about her early days, We talked about her career defining roles. We talked about movies like the Autobiography of Jane Pittman or and Sounder. We talked about her role in the TV series roots We talked about Everything you know, most recently she was and how to get away with murder. Miss Tyson's co star on that Syriza Viola Davis tweeted this last night and I wanted to read it for you quote. I'm devastated. My heart is just broken. I loved you so much. You were everything to me. You made me feel loved and seen and valued in a world where there is still a cloak of invisibility. Us dark chocolate girls. You gave me permission to dream. Cicely Tyson's accolades are too many to list here. Emmys, Golden Globes, A Peabody, a Tony and honorary Oscar mult multiple in the Deep Image awards. I mean, you know a million things. Had a clear vision. Mission to bring complex and nuanced black characters to the screen and on stage and tow uplift others who had dreams just like hers. When I got to speak to Cicely Tyson again just a few days ago. That dedication was crystal clear. I am so grateful. We got to bring you that conversation. So much of it is stuck with me and Especially the part where she talked about getting the presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2016. That moment is a moment that will live with me forever forever. And someone pointed out to me not too long ago. That I was the last person and his administration to receive it. Okay on that, he said. He made that statement. And then, he said And she's cool, gorgeous one than I need, huh? That's pretty good. If that gets into your presidential medal, you know that's a good sign. That's right. Well, you know, maybe this is a good way to close it off your 96 years old now and, you know, I think a lot of people want to know about the secret to a long life. And in the book you talk about how celery juice and morning pull ups are part of a key role. But what what other advice would you give people? I think that when, uh You get up in the morning and you're fortunate enough to see daylight. You're blessed on when I get up, and I see daylight. I first thank God I go into my meditation. Another change, and that gives me the faith. The car I thank God first. Very sick needs a face and a trust to go on for another day. And I think that's the most important thing that one have Detective Thank God just seeing another day. I never thought I would like to be 96 years old. My God, Every member of my family is gone. I am so surviving member of my family, and I was not expected to be here past three months.

The movie stars viola. Davis is the famous blue singer mall rainy and was adapted from august. Wilson's play our film critic. Justin chang says that boseman's final screen performance ranks among his very best. One reason chadwick boseman was such. An extraordinary actor was his ability to command the screen without hogging the spotlight. His presence was so quietly magnetic that even when he played real life. Heroes like jackie robinson and thurgood marshall or fictional ones like king to challa in black panther. He still seemed like the most self effacing of movie stars but boseman could also go big like when he took on james brown in the musical bio-pic get on up and gave his most electrifying performance. Until now it's devastating. That ma rainey's black bottom is the last new. Boseman movie will ever see this. Excellent adaptation of august wilson's nineteen eighty to play from the director george c wolfe and the screenwriter ruben. Santiago hudson is both a precious parting gift and a punch in the gut even more than get on up. Boseman holds nothing back. He emptied himself out onscreen. He plays levy a gifted and ambitious trumpet player struggling to forge his way in a white man's world or this case a white man's recording studio where most of the movie takes place. It's a sweltering hot day in nineteen twenty seven chicago in the pioneering southern blues singer ma rainey played by a superb viola. Davis is planning to record some of her most popular songs. Mas name may be in the place title. But she isn't the main narrative focus here much of the story unfolds while the four musicians in her band are waiting for her to show up at the studio. During the rehearsal session cutler the guitar and trombone player played by colman. Domingo wants to stick with their usual arrangement for a particular song but levy wants to use a new edgier version that he composed. It doesn't take long for the arguments to start and the egos to emerge. How's your name in. So i just played a piece whatever they want them. Criticizing the people's music like you. I got talent. Oh man is we tagged. My dad had a note. I was gonna turn out like the name mccabe. I'm going to give me a bad and make some shots. I don't give them instead of my. I wrote and he say going to let me record when i get my band together. I just got last part of song. I got stopped or everybody gets out there. And other keeping the same idea from the beginning in everybody got a game plan for all his outward swagger boseman later lays bare. The anguish beneath levies self-assured grin in a spellbinding monologue about his southern childhood. He reveals the acts of violence that were committed against his family by a gang of white men he's witnessed unspeakable horrors and fought hard for his shot at success. And he's not about to let anyone stand in his way not even marini herself when she finally shows up at the studio via davis who won an oscar for her work. In another wilson. Adaptation fences is magnificent. Here in the kind of full throated diva showcase. She's rarely taken on becoming more rainy. Required quite the transformation davis wears a padded rubber suit and sports. A mouthful of gold teeth and her vocals are supplied by the singer. Maxine lewis but the performance never feels needlessly. Flashy and davis is best moments are the ones in which she shows us. Ma rainey's anxious calculating side when she stops the recording session because no one's brought her the bottle of coke she always insists on before singing. She isn't just causing a fuss. Exactly what she's worth and how much power she commands in a predominantly white male industry and she's determined to push yourself right up to that line without crossing it marines. Black bottom is one of ten plays in august. Wilson's epic pittsburgh cycle and the only one that isn't actually set in pittsburgh wilson's insights into the complexities of twentieth century. African american experience cemented his reputation as one of this country's greatest dramatists. The filmmakers haven't opened up the material in the manner of so many stage to screen adaptations if anything they've ruthlessly tightened the play and paired it down to essentials wolf directs at a furious clip. The sets are spare even drab which has the effect of your concentration on the performances and while boseman and davis are the stars of the show. Every actor gets a chance to shine including michael potts as the bass player. Slow drag and glenn termine reprising his role as the pianist toledo from twenty sixteen revival at the heart of the play is the bond between levy a fictional creation and rainy. A real life figure. The two are antagonistic by nature levy keeps trying to put his own stamp on mas music and he makes the mistake of trying to seduce. Her young girlfriend played by taylor. Page but levy and ma are also kindred spirits. They're both trying to make authentic commercially viable art with an assistant bent on exploiting their talents but levy doesn't have martinis experience or her knack for self preservation and the weight of his past trauma ultimately proves too much to overcome the climax is hunting beyond words were seeing a man peering into an abyss played by an actor who knew his own life was slipping away chadwick.

"Played by chadwick. Boseman as the young trumpet player levy colman domingo cutler michael potts as slow drag and glenn termine as toledo. We also meet mas young lover. Desi may play by taylor page and her nephew sylvester played by deuce on brown. I want to just dive right in joel. You said you were very excited to talk about this coming what you thought. Oh my gosh linda. I loved it like it's hard to put into words how much i enjoyed it. And all of the reasons but chadwick boseman this be his final performance. Jeff estates think recently denzel washington in an interview said that like he didn't lose anything we lost him this idea that he gave everything he had to give while he was here. This for me is probably his magnum opus. His great work his his final statement. To wasn't he left us a lot of really great. If you look at all the roles he's chose in the last like three to four years. All of them are about conclusions and about wrapping things up. This one is so much more about like the hurt and pain. You have to just go through as a black person just to exist in this country and it's profound and gorgeous and the way we'll shoots this. I struggle a lot with theater to film translations. Because it's like theater it's so meant to be experienced in person and sometimes dial it doesn't quite work and particularly when they're monologue like you have a hard time like this doesn't feel real because it's not it's theater if you don't have to live in same kind of rules that film often does but when we'll takes his camera at a high angle as chadwick boseman is giving this like very revealing monologue. You're able to stay in it because you're sort of. It feels almost more in his head. It's more conversations having with and it captures. I think what is so hard to translate between these two mediums. And i love it and then on top of all that colman. Domingo like if you're making a movie just put colman domingo you cast anyone else in any other will ever a silent killer in everything that he does. And it's so profound. I love his in bad movies. I love his work in great. I love coleman doing and here he just continues that check and then they leave is crowns. It all off by just being great and showing up and her vocal performance away. She drinks coke. Makes you wanna die. It's a seven. I love performances. I like live live for like actors being able to nestle into character and create something that is so alive and vivid. No one in the cast isn't doing that. It's nearly a perfect soga. Yeah stephen thompson. What did you think. I love this movie. Too i think the central performances by chadwick boseman and by viola davis are so beautifully done. I do think there are a lot of parallels to be drawn between this film and fences which one viola davis and oscar that has also adapted from an august wilson. Play and both films are really so centered on the performances. They are really showcases for actors more than there necessarily like show willie directed big epochs. There are focused on the performances. I think that theatre film translation does trip them both up a little bit. Where they're so focused on the performances. They don't flow as naturally as they might. This there are points in this film. That felt a little bit stagey to me. But at the same time those performances are glorious. As joel said that chadwick boseman performance is is titanic. I mean it is a oscar clip e speech -i big performance. I think we cannot underestimate. How great this viola davis performance is. It is a quieter performance. She's doing so much work with just like kind of heavy eyelid. Look at a character will just is just searing. She is fantastic film and like joel said colman. Domingo is great. Glenn is great as toledo. I loved this film and as you would expect it just weaves music in beautifully. Yeah all right. I asia. Let's go to you next to you.

"Also drew attention this week for its latest cover, featuring the actress Viola Davis. Cover was the first in the publications history to be shot by a black photographer. Dario Call Maisie. Daniel Scruggs is a photo editor at box and also a board member of the authority Collective. A group of women non binary and trance photographers and film makers of color. Daniel. Welcome to the takeaway. Thank you for having me Also with us is Brent Lewis, Photo editor at The New York Times and Co founder of Diversify Photo. Brent Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. So, Danielle, What were your first thoughts when you saw any Liebovitz is photos of Simone Biles. So my initial reaction was. I know that her aesthetic is, um, a muted palette, beauty color tones, but I don't think that she took into account Simone Biles. The fact that you know she does have dark brown skin and you do have to account for that when you are lighting when you are lighting her and also just felt that the photos just weren't They didn't reflect how compelling and dynamic of a person on that Simone Biles is. Yeah, I mean, Brent. That's a really good point Annual raises here because a lot of the critiques were also just about the technical aspects of shooting and editing, darker skin tones. Can you elaborate a little bit on that? It comes down to really looking at the experience of folks that people have because Lytton and actually just photographing darker skin tones, brings and never layer understanding and never layer of knowing that need may be exposed for 1/2 stock down or Whatever it is, we'll bring in extra field car something like that. And you can see that. I don't know. You know, she phoned it in for this one or it was not fully thought of, but whoever was doing the lighting takes on that one. Just really missed the ball because it doesn't give that plate And I know that she's all about her subdued, muted tones, but this one was just a little bit too far off. What? No, we've come to expect. And I'm wondering Danielle. And when we think about who gets to shoot, whom do celebrities like Simone often have a say in who shoots them? I mean, do we? Are they able to say Look, I want to be photographed by this photographer. Not that photographer I could imagine being told that you're going to be photographed by any liebovitz would be You know, for a cover like that is a big deal for a celebrity. But then you know what happens then? I mean, how much of a say does the subject have I'm I guess it depends on who it is like. I know. For example, Beyonce, um, specifically requested Tyler Mitchell to photograph her for her whole cover. But I also recognize that There's so many moving parts when it comes to magazine photography and producing a shoot like of this nature s. Oh, there's the creative director. There's the photo editor. There's the editor in chief. There's In a winter herself Who's she oversees? Kind of, like all of the creative direction for various Conde Nast outlets, and so I think celebrities do have some power..

"About her documentary a touch of sugar which is narrated by one of my favorite actresses of all time viola Davis that dives into America's type two diabetes epidemic that is the word the teacher will come thank you so much for having me Kristin it's a pleasure to have your tell our listeners a little bit about this about this film a touch of sugar and what inspired you to participate in the film absolutely not the inspiration really came up because type two diabetes is a personal topic to me my grandfather died from complications of the disease and as a chef and as a Latina Kristin I understand that there are some common challenges that Hispanics face across the nation that are the same and we're talking about you know things like eating healthy making time to exercise and working with your doctor on a treatment plan that's right for you and the alarming fact is that almost twelve percent of the Hispanic population in this country is already diagnosed with type two diabetes that's how I came to join forces with mark on this documentary called again a touch of sugar and the goal of the documentaries really to raise awareness about type two diabetes especially on long under served communities yeah it's so true between you and mark who's been so instrumental in helping people with this condition that's a one two punch right there when people are watching this film what are you hoping their top take aways are going to be with regard to lessons learn to and insights gained what are your top goals with this film yeah absolutely well we hope that after watching the movie people will feel inspired to realize first of all that they're not alone we need to come together in this you know we need to realize that we need to fundament to make fundamental changes to the way that we treat support an advocate for people living with type two diabetes and the goal of the movie is exactly that not not only to raise awareness about type two diabetes but also Kristin to sparkle action to sparkle change in lifestyle you know and ultimately to help America confront this epidemic had on one patient and one community at a time yeah it's so true we were talking before the break about this is what we got people in the studio who are impacted by this and you are now very involved in this America's diabetes challenge and I mentioned earlier in the show just about every household in America knows someone who's been impacted by type two diabetes what was your personal motivation you made a brief mention of it before but dive in a little deeper as to what your personal motivation was to become involved well I share my passion for healthy cooking I I guess that as a chef I have a mission of joy and love to inspire families to come together in the kitchen I think that everything happens in the kitchen and even in right I mean life happens in the kitchen and even in the movie you know I'm also in the kitchen in the movie I share my passion for healthy cooking with a Hispanic woman living in California and how she struggles to manage her type two diabetes for the lack of the right resources the lack of information the lack of cooking classes you know the lack of nutritional information about living with type two diabetes very isolating at times and and the worst thing that you can do is to really isolate a member of the family and I remember when my grandparents were alive they used to do that my grandmother used to say no no no no no their food you cannot touch it but the rest of the family we can all enjoy this amazing food I realize now on how wrong that mentality is you know and I try to Greek recipes that bring the family together in the kitchen it's connectivity so I develop recipes for example like salad with smoked salmon arugula and mango which is absolutely delicious another recipe for Moroccan meatballs I mean there's so many recipes that are you know the kind of recipe that you won't be eating and say this is good considering that it's good for you these recipes all can be found on our website a touch of sugar film dot com brilliant and you you brought up an interesting for you had me chuckling because I think we all have the grandparents stories work one grandparent was kind of mothering over the other repair to go the other no don't touch that don't go near that whatever and you bring up an interesting point because just in a couple of generations the treatment for type two diabetes has moved forward light years in ways that even the most you know optimistic of us could not have ever imagined and you bring up a good point what are you finding to be perhaps the biggest misconception still with type two diabetes are people still in the mindset of say a generation or two before saying this is absolutely taboo

know Hey that's no longer the case yeah absolutely I think you mentioned a very important word here which is taboo and stigma I think that one of the things that we try to do in this movie is to shed a light on the many social factors that surround living with type two diabetes there are language barriers there's stigma there are cultural influences there is so many social factors that influence and like you said more than fifty percent of the Hispanic adults in this country are expected to develop type two type two diabetes in their lifetime you know what we're trying to do here is really.

"So suddenly, it's out like to me like I remember we did when I was at AT and second city in Chicago somebody else, actually, David Pompeii. And I think creek Caskey had seen that I wasn't in and. And had a different. But yet they sure I was in it, and they used the N word in it. And I don't know I was backstage care. But what I know is that then I got called in by the producer one day. And I was like what why am I what do you want me here? He's like, well, I wonder if you could call this woman, she's black woman came to the show, and she was offended by this scene. And I was like well number one. I'm not in the scene. So why are you didn't write it? Yeah. I'm like, why am I here? And I don't want those people didn't speak articulately about anything. And he couldn't trust that the black person, David. Couldn't trust. What he would say in it. So he got I'd be the better represented. I was like I'm sorry when white people call to complain to you make cast members talk to them, many was just looked at me. And I was like I don't give a fuck if one black person, then don't come back. I mean like you don't have to like it. It's not for you for someone may not be for you that one opinion isn't more valuable than anyone else's is the person who wrote it m fine with and or at least call the people who wrote it, and that's what pissed me off about that situation. Is that somehow we didn't get to be thirties about our experience that we were writing. Yes, you know, at that really pissed so here's the thing. The problem is is that, you know, expecting one Sichuan situation to represent every single person of color, and everything could be lazy can be. Cheever's to work. I'm gonna be black layer. No one thing hardworking and sassy and taking no Gulf. Another thing. Right. It's like even even like the most charitable version of what the people who gave those notes are obviously not exemption beginning notes, but and even lot of exemption begin notes. But but there's a part where it's a part of that. I'm sure is like the sense there's relatively so little black representation that some black folks and some people in general feel like everyone of them has to be a perfect thing or playing like like white people be that way. There's so much whiteness. Yeah. But you can't be an artist away by Ola viola Davis. She said it I think put it that way when she was talking about the help. That we just can't I get I can't survive as an artist that way, financially or artistically, you know. And so it's this. It's really frustrating. You know when you're out here, and you have to. But again, we've been writers. We had one job where I'm pretty sure our job was. They producers above us with come in. And check them crazy and wrong. And then they will come in. And they were go Kambli one. Or other words that we can call a black, man. African American black. And we went there are none. Really, let me stop you going. What were you thinking when they put baby mama in a sense? It didn't have to be there. Yeah. You know? Like, there's no that's not the issue. I have long pitched. Knows this racist corporate. We'll sit in a room. We'll sit in a windowless give out stamps not racist approved. A little like slip under the door. Job was we'd be like, okay. We'll ask yourself. Why did you have to put Latino in this? It was a game a game show that we were writing questions. Why'd you put Latino in it right to at least be able to justify it makes. And when you realize you sound racist try to justify exac provides your own or. Oh my God. Thank you. We obviously could do this for hours. Thanks.
