"Ask A Slave" With Azie Dungey

When D.C. native Azie Dungey returned to the region after college, she found work as an interpreter for local historic sites. As an African-American telling the story of a slave at Mount Vernon, she was asked questions both absurd and sublime. She's turned the experience into a satirical web series, "Ask a Slave," that earns raves for its insights and humor alike. Dungey joins Kojo in studio to talk about her career thus far and what comes next.
