Presents an overview of the African American tradition in Hollywood films.

The course examines the role of African Americans in the film industry both as creators and consumers of cinema. Students will view and analyze landmark full-length feature films chronologically starting in 1915 as a means of studying conventional race relations and stereotypes during the time period in which the film was produced.
