Description
Images of African Americans in our mass media - not unlike images of women - have a long history of being limited and limiting. This class will open up discussion of these limiting factors, whether in the particular narratives of "mainstream" Hollywood films, television news, or music videos. We will analyze the development of black voices and black imagery through films that deliberately disrupt and disregard prevailing norms, or that find a place in popular commercial cinema, by reframing the very notion of blackness in our culture.
