Ethnic Notions (1986)
November 2, 2022 2:38 PM - Subscribe

This documentary traces the deep-rooted stereotypes which have fueled anti-black prejudice.

Available as part of the Criterion set The Signifyin' Works of Marlon Riggs, on Kanopy, in Ovid, and possibly on DVD/Blu-Ray at your local library.

Warning: in teasing out the psychology behind the racism, this film is not shy about showing images which are--quite frankly--both shocking and deeply offensive.

I found a copy yesterday, and hoo, boy, you were not exaggerating about the imagery.

I have a feeling this would make for an amazing double-feature with Spike Lee's Bamboozled.
