The topic of Hollywood Blacklisting has recently added a chapter - the impact it had on the budding TV industry, and more specifically, women.
Researched and backed by FBI
files of author/scholar Dr. Carol Stabile (University of Oregon),
this 4 episode series mentions names of talented women whose
careers were maliciously ruined with the publication of Red
Channels. You’ll also hear from another author and scholar, Dr.
Charlene Regester. In episode 3, listen in on our frank
conversation about how racism, Jim Crow laws and segregation
further changed the course of early TV.
