Hollywood would have us thinking that the narratives of blacks stop at slaves, thugs, and crackheads. We know that isn’t true, but entertainment depicting alternate narratives are few and far between. LA-based Comedian, Writer, and Actress, Alesia Etinoff, is helping to narrow that gap with new web-series, “Avant-Guardians”. In this Afrofuturism series, Etinoff plays guardian angel, Razz, who watches over 12-year-old future third black President, Charlie, whom she refers to as “Creepy Charlie.” Razz is instructed by God to attend therapy after a recent accident Charlie had.
