This edition: Underground with Amirah Vann

Episode Details

Original tape date: April 12, 2017.

First aired: April 26, 2017.

When WGN's hit show “Underground” first debuted, it was clear that the show wasn't designed to depict the typical slave narrative. The series, produced by John Legend and written by Misha Green & Joe Pokaski, tells the story of slaves who defied their masters and fled to freedom.

Carol Jenkins sat down with Amirah Vann who plays Earnestine on the hit show to discuss Underground's success and her career.
