AFAM 3623 American Cinema and Black Representation

4 semester hours

In the post-Civil Rights era, African Americans are a part of American culture in ways that reflect not only a high degree of visibility but also extraordinary popularity. American cinema is a significant visual medium that has delivered various representations of Black people, racial progress, and notions of racial pathology (whether real or fictional). This course examines how American cinema has defined the issue of race in American society.
