Africana Studies 211 - Black Representation in American Film

Every spring semester, CCBC offers AASD 211 (Black Representation in American Film) whereby the students in the class are integral to the planning of the film festival.  The class is open to anyone interested in taking the course.  It meets once a week on Thursday evenings from 5:45 - 8:40. Films are screened each week from a different decade of the 20th and 21st centuries. Issues of stereotyping, audience, profit, and other considerations are discussed.  If you are interested in learning more or registering for this course, click here or contact Professor Michelle Diane Wright at
