Zip ah Dee doo Dah every body!

This week we discuss Song of the South. This film has been lock away in the Disney Vault for years because of controversial stereotypes. However many people may recognize elements from the film but have never seen it, including the song Zip-Ah-Dee-Doo-Dah and characters like Br'er Rabbit, Bear and Fox. 

Bre and Way watch the film and review what make it so controversial, and ask themselves if it really is something that must be hidden in the vault forever.

******* One of the artistic influences mentioned by our guest will not be listed , because the hosts of Black N Animated do not agree with the things this artist has done. We recognize that someone can be influenced by an artist work and not the artist themselves, but we do not wish to offend by giving this person any more of a platform by sharing their work along with the other two artists. ********
