Toms, Coons, Mulattoes, Mammies & Bucks An Interpretive History of Blacks in American Films Overview

This classic study of black images in American motion pictures has once again been completely revised and updated. It includes new sections on the end of the 1980s plus a chapter devoted to the unequaled rise of the new African American cinema and stars of the 1990s. Donald Bogie reveals the way in which the image of blacks in American movies has changed--and also the shocking way in which it has remained the same. Completely updated and greatly expanded to include the explosion of black film stars and filmmakers that came out of the '70s and '80s, this comprehensive guide covers the entire history of African-Americans in films, from the shocking images in Birth of a Nation to Spike Lee's controversial Malcolm X. Photos. Index.
