Osher (50+). In this course, we watch full-length movies and discuss race relations.


About this course:

This is the second in a series of movies focused on African-American themes and actors. In the last course, we looked at both popular and race films of the 1930s to 1950s. In this course, we watch six classic movies, three each from the 1960s and 1970s, respectively. Movies include To Kill a Mockingbird, Raisin in the Sun, In the Heat of the Night, Cotton Comes to Harlem, Super Fly, and Shaft; and provide an opportunity to view U.S. race relations from a black perspective.
