This weekend, TV One will air a one-hour special about the highly anticipated and controversial film, Django Unchained, set to open on Christmas Day. The film follows a freed-slave (Jamie Foxx), who goes on a quest to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) living on a Mississippi plantation. On the road to Candyland, Django joins forces with a bounty hunter (Cristolph Waltz), from whom he learns how to be a badass cowboy.


Cathy Hughes chats with Foxx, Washington and the film's director, Quentin Tarantino, about the affects it will have on the African-American community, the historical perspective and more.


It airs this Saturday at 7 p.m. Will you be heading to the theaters to see Django Unchained?
