Siobhan Brooks, associate professor and department chair of African-American studies, recently shared her expertise and research in a discussion about the recently released film, “Hustlers,” and the issues affecting strippers.
“Hustlers” is inspired by a viral New York Magazine article, based on a true story of former strip club employees who join forces to swindle their Wall Street clients during the 2008 financial crisis. The film stars Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer and Cardi B.
