Playwright Jeremy O. Harris opens up about his debut show “Slave Play” and why he feels it is important to bluntly confront sex and race. Harris says part of his goal requires “blowing up” the current way people talk about these topics, and argues that is why powerful art can deploy elements of shock to change people’s minds, in this interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber.
