Abstract:

Author Eileen Moore presents a decade-by-decade comparison of racism in Hollywood films and Supreme Court decisions, and then shows how they affected our lives. Beginning with The Birth of a Nation in 1915 and continuing on through the new millennium, a surprising fact is that the United States Supreme Court, often perceived as out-of-touch and stuffy, is often far more fair and liberal in their treatment of blacks than is Hollywood. Illustrated with more than twenty black-and-white photos, this in-depth study is sometimes shocking, often surprising, and is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of film, law, race relations, pop culture--or of our country as a whole.--From publisher description.
