Rita McGhee on “American Soul”

Emmy winning Costume designer Rita McGhee was a student at Howard University when she had a life-changing encounter with Spike Lee. Her bid was a success and she was hired as an intern. Fast forward twenty-some years and she is now helming the costume department for American Soul, currently in its second season on BET following her successful run on Empire. She speaks about her experience to the HFPA’s Margaret Gardiner via remote video.
