The Black Man on Film: Racial Stereotyping. Hayden Film Attitudes and Issues Series.
Maynard, Richard A.
Motion pictures have long been recognized as a mirror of society's values and attitudes, and for motivational and impression-making impact they are unsurpassed. The Hayden Film Attitudes and Issues Series is based on the teacher's source book, the Celluloid Curriculum: How to Use Movies in the Classroom. This series presents written sources suggested in the teacher's source book for use by secondary and college level students. Teaching strategies include readings, viewing of films, and classroom discussions. The series consists of the following four unit books: The Black Man on Film: Racial Stereotyping; Africa on Film: Myth and Reality; The American West on Film: Myth and Reality; and Propaganda on Film: A Nation at War. Each book contains background reading, synopses of films discussed, stills of particularly meaningful scenes, and questions with which to stimulate classroom discussion. Annotated filmographies are included. (Author/RM)
