I am slow to joining the Drunk History train, but the Comedy Central show’s retelling of Harriet Tubman’s story has made me a fan.
Drunk History is a show where people get drunk and retell history stories, which are then reenacted by actors. The combination of Crissle, liquor and Octavia Spencer as Tubman is absolutely amazing and makes me wish that my history classes in high school were more like this.
(Note: strong language; not suitable for work)
In an age where the right wing is trying to whitewash slavery out of history books, it’s refreshing to see stories like these covered in a comedic fashion.
Meanwhile, I’ll be catching up on Drunk History.
