Growing up awkward and deeply uncool is hard enough without being Black in a white neighborhood. Danielle Henderson is a TV writer and cohost of the film podcast “I Saw What You Did,” and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about her experience being raised by her grandmother after her mother abandoned her – and about how her love of horror movies taught her to have faith in herself. Her new book is called “The Ugly Cry: A Memoir.”
