The Netflix movie “Step Sisters” started streaming Jan. 19 and it’s racking up a lot of cheers and jeers. The movie revolves around Jamiliah, an African-American “Philly girl” from Harvard graduate parents looking to help a group of white sorority members retain

producer and Delaware native Chuck Hayward about cultural appropriation 101 and how this film focuses more on cultural exchange and race relations on college campuses.
