The First

On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by Kellita Smith (@kellitasmith1), Peabody Award winning actress for her role on the Emmy award winning Bernie Mac Show, and current lead actress on SyFy’s Z Nation to chat about being the first Black lead actor in a series on the network.

We discuss how Hollywood still has quite a way to go for Black women, what it’s like transitioning from comedic roles to science fiction, when she found out she was the first Black actor (male or female) in a lead role on the network, what position she’d play in her survival squad if a zombie apocalypse really jumped off, and Kellita drops gems about finding your passion that you need to hear.  Listen and give us your opinion!
