"An examination of the African-American experience by watching fictional narratives, documentaries, and television episodes by filmmakers of color across multiple genres exploring multiple themes with the goal of developing greater empathy towards and appreciation of their lives and experiences.
Students will watch an assigned film outside of class which we will discuss and analyze in class. Students will also learn how to "read" a film.
This is an 8 week course that will be a safe space to have uncomfortable conversations, and watch great films." (Promo Copy)
