10 a.m. - noon Location: JO 4.708
The 1966 film, “Dutchman”, will be presented, with comment by Ms. Kerry Goldmann.
Ms. Goldmann will discuss how the sharp increase in black theatre institutions between the 1960s and 1980s shaped the character of black cultural and social movements. These theatrical institutions were physical manifestations of the heart of the Black Power campaign, facilitating community outreach and sovereignty through separatism. The film adaptation of Amiri Baraka’s play Dutchman explores the theme of dissolving racial cooperation.
