The trailblazing costume designer — the first black person ever nominated for the best costume design Oscar, she now has three such noms to her name (no black woman has more across all categories) — reflects on breaking into her profession when no other black women were getting work, her 14 collaborations with Spike Lee and what it was like costuming a 2018 movie unlike any before it.

But first: Melissa Berton and Rayka Zehtabchi join Scott to discuss the best documentary short Oscar nominee 'Period. End of Sentence,' a film they made about young women in India whose lives were changed by contemporaries in Los Angeles.

Credits: Hosted by Scott Feinberg, recorded by Jennifer Whitehurst and produced by Matthew Whitehurst.
