The Small Axe: Education Interview Part 1 – Sharlene Whyte

9 min 2 yrs

Good evening my friends and welcome to the latest edition of THE INTERVUE. On this edition, we are exploring the final episode of Steve McQueen’s anthology series Small Axe.

Education is the coming of age story of 12-year-old Kingsley, a boy with a fascination for astronauts and rockets. When Kingsley is called to the Headmaster’s office for disruptive behavior in class, he is shocked to discover his transfer to a school for those with “special needs.” Distracted by working two jobs, his parents are unaware of what was an unofficial segregation policy at play, preventing many Black children from having the education they deserve until a group of West Indian women takes matters into their own hands.

This final episode premieres tomorrow night, December 18th on Amazon Prime. In the first part of this two-part interview series, we are talking to the critically acclaimed actress who plays matriarch Agnes Smith. Let’s welcome to the INTERVUE, Sharlene Whyte!
