It’s been 100 years since Virginia lawmakers created the Virginia State Board of Censors.  The all-white board required edits to over 2,000 movies from the 1920s through ‘60s, and were especially concerned about depictions of race.  Melissa Ooten with the University of Richmond wrote a book about the board. She sat down with VPM News reporter Ben Paviour to discuss her research.
