Revisit the racial stereotypes of yesteryear and examine how these portrayals influence our views on race. How did radio and television’s “Amos & Andy” shape our collective perceptions and attitudes? From the vantage point of today, how should we remember the Black actors and actresses who portrayed these characters? Should “Gone with the Wind” be shown at film festivals? How do hate groups use social media?
Would love to see local universities create classes on “Radio, Television, Media & Race” and open it to the community at minimal cost! Classes could be multi-campus (eg. VCU, VUU, UR).
