This week on SalonTV: New Orleans mayor, Edie Falco and cast from "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee"

We're talking history, hip-hop and comedy and bringing you the latest films and books

The mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu, will appear on SalonTV this week to talk about his approach for bringing the people of New Orleans together, and what led to his decision to remove Confederate monuments from the city of New Orleans, which is the subject of his new book “In the Shadow of Statues: A White Southerner Confronts History.”

Award-winning actor Edie Falco stops by to talk about her role in "Outside In," a new film where she plays the former high school teacher of an ex-con who is struggling to readjust to life in his small town.

Two new Netflix projects centered around hip-hop will stop by, including Sacha Jenkins of “Rapture,” an eight-episode documentary series spotlighting the lives of Nas, Dave East, T.I., Rapsody, Logic and more, and legendary MC Roxanne Shanté and the actor who plays her in a new biopic “Roxanne, Roxanne,” Chanté Adams. The film is co-produced by Forest Whitaker and Pharrell Williams and centers on Shanté’s life in the Queensbridge Projects in NYC and her rise to rap star.

And get ready to laugh with Ashley Nicole Black and Amy Hoggart, correspondents from "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.” They’ll discuss their one-hour Puerto Rico travel special airing on TBS on March 28.
