The entertainment industry is updating some characters by changing their race. Today Morning AMp host Brian Babylon is joined by Sonya Jackson and Dr. Coya Paz to discuss race in entertainment. Will this lead to a more racially sensitive society?
Vocalo intern/comedian, Tim Barnes joins ‘Morning AMp’ hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to discuss the latest trends. The big topic of 2014 is diversity.

Though it seems like an adult conversation, producers of the play point out that many teens face consumption of this drug every day. Now they are bringing the conversation to the stage.
