Racism; A Film Course Study Guide.
The medium of film is uniquely suited to the representation of social problems such as racism. By stressing major issues of racism--slavery, the black cultural heritage, black power, and the black civil rights movement--and coupling these issues with films which give a realistic view of the substance and problems of racism, both concepts concerning racist culture and aesthetic filmic principles can be taught. Sound films that appeal to both white and black audiences are delineated. The guide also includes a list of further readings, a short chronology of film history, and bookings instructions. (CH)
