  1. Marlon Riggs' Emmy Award Winning Ethic Notions

    April 22, 2018, 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM @ Martin Luther King Center

    Marlon Riggs' Emmy-winning documentary Ethnic Notions (1987) takes viewers on a disturbing voyage through American history, tracing for the first time the deep-rooted stereotypes which have fueled anti-black prejudice. Through these images we can begin to understand the evolution of racial consciousness in America. Dehumanizing caricatures permeated popular culture from the 1820s to the Civil Rights period and implanted themselves deep in the American psyche. Narration by Esther Rolle and commentary by respected scholars shed light on the origins and devastating consequences of this 150 yearlong parade of bigotry.
