Confederate & Black America

HBO is asking for patience in response to an anti-Confederate hashtag campaign. Jake Nevins wonders if the backlash could be enough to sink the series. Academics Ben Railton and Matthew Teutsch have putting together a #NoConfederate reading list (which incidentally could use some media studies input). Meanwhile, Amazon just announced a project in development called Black America, also an alt-history series about post-slavery reparations in America. Todd VanDerWerff offers comparative thoughts on Black America and Confederate.
