De Witt is a long-time TV & film veteran, probab...

    BBC iPlayer Goes Global With New iPad Application

    Shadow and Act frequently shines a light on cinema and television programs of the African diaspora that are sometimes exclusively available to readers in the U.K. There have been many times when even I have wondered, "Man, I'd love to watch that program-- why can't we get that here?!!"
