Summary Under pressure to help revive his network's low ratings, television writer Pierre Delacroix hits on an explosively offensive idea: bringing back blackface with "The New Millennium Minstrel Show." The white network executives love it, and so do audiences, forcing Pierre and his collaborators to confront their public's insatiable appetite for dehumanizing stereotypes.
