WATCH: Elizabeth Vargas chats with Dustin Lance Black about the timing of ‘When We Rise’
When We Rise has finished its four night run on ABC. But I just came across this powerful Nightline piece by Elizabeth Vargas that includes a good interview with Dustin Lance Black. They chat about how the airing of the eight-hour show coincides with the Trump administration’s rollback of guidelines protecting transgender students. Black also gets a bit choked up when talking about the portion of the series focused on the AIDS epidemic. He speaks eloquently about all the lives lost. If you missed When We Rise and don’t have it on DVR, it’s on Hulu and other streaming services.
