|RACE IN AMERICA|
|Films are exceptionally useful historical artifacts, as they depict the limits of the imaginable in any given era even as they reveal contemporaneous political, social, economic, and cultural norms. This is especially true of race relations in the U.S. In this course, we will study, screen, and discuss films that were released during the 20th and early 21st century. These cinematic art forms reflect American racial issues, race culture, and ideas about social progress over the past seventy-five years.|
