Racist Images in Classic Films


A recent discussion on Twitter inspired me to ask a group of classic film lovers, fellow bloggers and Twitter users to contribute to a conversation at The Movie Morlocks about racist images in classic films. It’s a topic that’s too often swept under the rug or completely ignored by film fans and critics. It also coincides with the end of TCM’s annual look at Race and Hollywood and their month long event, Arab Images on Film. Participants included Sarah Dyer, Jason Gilmore, Farran Smith Nehme, Bob Turnbull and Sara Maria Vizcarrondo who all shared their own thoughts about this extremely sensitive topic.
