1. NEXT Thesis: Black Screen, Black Voice


    from Leah S. / Added

    For a year, I researched and wrote a paper on Race Films, black film director Oscar Micheaux. and blacks within American cinema. Then I wrote a script and produced an animation based on my research. Black representation in media has always been an issue, specifically in cinema. From the beginning, black actors were not given complex characters and were often relegated to play degrading stereotypes. A group of black artists and directors started producing films in the early 20th century to counteract these stereotypes. Called Race Films, these were made by black people, for black people and showed how blacks really lived and behaved. “Black Screen, Black Voice” is a narrative story about a black woman's involvement in this movement. Her brush with the Race Riots of 1919 prompts her social activism and she meets one of the most important black directors of the early 20th century, Oscar Micheaux.
