Good episode? Give it some love!
Richard Pryor, Pam Grier, and Cleavon Little star in Greased Lightning, the 1977 Biopic about Wendell Scott, the first African-American driver in NASCAR. The film takes a look at his life from his moonshiner days in the 40s through his near career ending wreck in the 70s, and doesn't shy away from showing all the hardships he faced pursuing his dream. We'll talk about the comedy, and serious, aspects of the story while setting a few things straight that the film got wrong. 

Trigger Warning: The film depicts several characters using slurs against Scott, and assaulting him.
