Angela Davis. Original Caption: “10/13/1970-New York, NY- Black revolutionary Angela Davis, 26, sought for murder and kidnapping, was captured 10/13 by the FBI. Miss Davis, a former instructor at UCLA and an avowed Communist, usually sports an Afro hairdo, but she was wearing a short wig when arrested. She is shown at left in an FBI mug shot taken after her arrest.”
Currently listening to New York magazine writer Jennifer Senior on the Longform podcast. Give it a listen.
Anonymous asked: Thank you so much!! :) if it's not a bother, Can I ask how you started working in tv?
I interned a lot and talked to a lot of people. There was also a point where I just couldn’t do the whole “unpaid intern who also has to have another job to subsidize the internship” thing anymore and I kind of had a turning point in terms of asking for what I want and only looking at jobs that pay and that helped me find more fulfilling internships. If this is the same anon and you’re interested in tv writing, I would recommend The Nerdist Writers Panel podcast which talks to a lot of people in the tv/film world who give good advice.
