The Cast and Crew of "black-ish" on the Importance of Juneteenth
ABC's "black-ish" made waves with its season 4 premiere, a musical episode titled "Juneteenth," about the day commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. As we celebrate another Juneteenth, America finds itself embroiled in a national soul-searching on race and the Black experience in this country. We gathered writer/co-executive producer Peter Saji, who wrote the episode "Juneteenth," along with Anthony Anderson (who plays Dre), Tracee Ellis Ross (Rainbow), Laurence Fishburne (Pops), Yara Shahidi (Zoey), Marcus Scribner (Junior), Marsai Martin (Diane), and Miles Brown (Jack) for a video chat about the episode. The cast and crew discuss the genesis of the idea for a musical episode on this important topic, the episode's development through rehearsal, memorable moments during filming, and the episode's powerful legacy.
