“Ask A Slave” Web Series Pokes Fun At Americans’ Ignorance, Racism | News One

Lizzie Mae Dungey | Ask A Slave Web Series

Slavery and comedy almost never make for good humor, but actress and comedian Azie Mira Dungey nails it in her new web series, “Ask A Slave.”

As “Lizzie Mae,” Dungey sits in front of a TV and answers viewers’ shamefully ridiculous questions about slavery and George Washington. It is pure hilarity excellently executed. Her last job gave her plenty of material. The questions the Lizzie Mae character answers are the same as those asked mostly by White tourists when Dungey portrayed the role of a house maid who worked inside of George Washington‘s mansion in Mount Vernon, Va., from 2010 until the end of last year.
