Project idea 2:

My 2nd idea involves looking at the social/political context of Black Cinema. This will either be the effect of Blaxploitation films in the 70s (Gordon Parks Jr. Superfly, 1972) and how that affected African-American filmmakers in the 80s and 90s (Spike Lee, Do The Right Thing, 1989; Jon Singleton, Boyz N The Hood, 1991). Or exploring Race in America, whether that be police brutality and racial tensions (Do The Right Thing, 1989) gang violence and gentrification (Boyz N The Hood, 1991) and neo-fascism (Tony Kaye, American History X, 1998).
