o One ten-page primary research presentation:Students will present a ten to fourteen page paper (@2500 words) at semester’s end based upon primary research. Throughout American history, African Americans struggled to fully control their image– especially within the mainstream–and their identity was informed by how they were seen by others.

• What does this movie suggest about the status of blacks and their overall status in American
society? Does the movie acknowledge any “unfair” treatment for African Americans? If so,
how? If not, why do you think this is? Is the black character compromised or marginalized in
any way in relation to any white characters? If so, what does this imagery mean for
contemporary race relations?
NOTE: In picking a mainstream movie, ensure that it is a “regular” mainstream movie and not a movie that
explicitly and expressly engages historical race relations (e.g., “The Help,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Amistad,” etc.
-Two-person student teams will write on a movie of their own choosing in consultation and with
the Professor’s approval by Week 5 to avoid duplicate entries. Papers will be presented to the
entire class during the final two weeks of the semester. In the live presentation, students must use
three movie clips that each speak to a component of the Unholy Trinity.
Power point should included short video that explain what talking about in papers.
