Abstract:

The Jackie Shearer Papers document various aspects of the filmmaker's career, including production and research files as well as scripts for a few of her films, and her involvement with professional organizations, the latter exemplified by minutes and other material for the Independent Television Service Shearer's, 1980s-1993, are emphasized in this collection.

Shearer worked on a number of films with primarily African-American themes in a variety of roles: producer, director and script writer, with many examples in the Projects series, 1966-1992. The files for "Addie and the Pink Carnations" include proposals, synopses and contracts with script writers. In addition to several versions of the screenplay written by Shearer, there are a number of script outlines and versions by Ifa Baeza, John Edgar Wideman, Steve Seidel and Patricia Goldstone. Research material encompasses interview transcripts and a thesis, among other items.

Folders for the exhibit "Going Up to Birmingham" which was installed on the voting rights video wall in the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in 1992 consist of a media package, budget and other financial information, as well as production files, 1991-1992. For Shearer's 1984 "Incident Report," a thirty-minute narrative film on nursing home abuse, there are scripts and correspondence about the production.

Material for the film "Massachusetts 54th Colored Infantry" (1991) documents its production and consists of research files for particular soldiers including notes based on their pension records, a copy of Mary Frances Berry's 1966 dissertation, "The Negro Soldier Movement and the Adoption of the National Conscription: 1652-1865," and photocopies of letters from Corporal James Henry Gooding and other members of the regiment. Additional research material incorporates notes about free blacks in Boston during the Civil War era, and, for the Battle of Fort Wagner, there are manuscripts by Stephen R. Wise and Richard Andersen focusing on Robert Gould Shaw. The "Massachusetts 54th" also includes scripts, production files and Shearer's manuscript for a report concerning the making of this film.

Files for "A Minor Altercation" (1976), consist of a script, discussion guide, and information about screenings and distribution. Material for the unproduced "Songs of My People" contains a proposal, production files (treatments), and the transcript of a lengthy advisors meeting with Quincy Jones and others, 1991. There are script notes and a prospectus for the film "Sophronia," a love story, planned as a ninety-minute color film in 1979. Proposed projects of Shearer and other filmmakers such as Michelle Parkerson and Jack Willis can also be found here.
