We were so excited to have John Boyega come through to The Breakfast Club! He discussed his newest films “Breaking” and “Woman King”, what his time was like as the “Black Actor” in a Star Wars film and more. John shed light on what its like to being the token in a large movie production. The experience made him feel like a pawn when it came to soliciting the black dollar. He didn’t have a leading role, but he was the only black face promoted. Interesting! The John and Charlamagne discuss the power of black love and you must hear see how that turned out!
During the interview, it took a turn into serious matters. John was asked about his activism during the Black Lives Matter movement and how that directly impacted his career. This interview is impactful in more ways than one! Check out the full interview with John Boyega above!
