Jackie "Moms" Mabley emerged from the Chitlin' Circuit of African-American vaudeville to become a pioneer in mainstream comedy. Once billed as "The Funniest Woman in the World," Mabley pushed the boundaries of comedy by tackling topics such as gender, sex, and racism and performed up until her death in 1975. Bambi Haggins (Film and Media Studies, UC Irvine), is featured in the film and served as a consultant to Whoopi Goldberg who directed a documentary on Mabley, joins moderator Patrice Petro. Recorded on 04/19/2018. (#33753)
