Sunday @ 2 Films: Black Memorabilia

Description: 

Sunday @ 2 Films Double Feature:

Sunday, September 9, 2pm

 

Black Memorabilia (62 minutes)

From industrial China to the rural American south to contemporary Brooklyn, we observe the people and places that reproduce, consume and reclaim BLACK MEMORABILIA. Moving beyond perverse collectibles that serve as reminders of America’s troubled racial history, the film combats stereotypes and presents a poetic portrait of the people who consume, manufacture and assume the identities of these objects.

 
Ethnic Notions (56 Minutes)
 
Marlon Riggs' Emmy-winning documentary that takes viewers on a disturbing voyage through American history, tracing  deep-rooted stereotypes which have fueled anti-black prejudice through popular culture by examining cartoons, feature films, popular songs, household artifacts and children's rhymes. The documentary focuses on evaluating the stereotypical characters of the Sambo, the Brute, the Coon and the Mammy, and it shows how such derogatory depictions have led to the justification of racism.
