Must post first.
Watch two feature-length fiction movies that explore race, has lead characters who are of different races, or has main characters who are not from a race from which you self-identify. If you need help choosing movies, contact the professor early in the week or before Week Six begins. One film should be from the last 20 years and the other film should be from between 1945 and 1980.
After reading this week’s material and watching the two movies, write about what you have learned or what was confirmed for you. Be sure to:
- Identify the main characters and their race, or the race they are portraying (for example if a white actor is playing a Native American).
- Discuss how race, racial relations, stereotypes, and/or racism plays a part in the film.
