Hollywood Cinema Representations of Slave Cabins

Thursday, May 13, 2021

Ages 12 and up.

Join Dr. Julie Rose for an illustrated presentation on the depiction of slave dwellings in Hollywood films from the 20th and 21st centuries. She will discuss how movies can influence audience's perceptions of American slavery.

Dr. Rose will be joined by Stephanie Sperling, senior archaeologist with MNCPPC, and who will share some of her findings at Mt. Calvert.

Together they will examine the archaeological evidence and depictions of slave quarters to consider how
recollections of slave life are reflected today.
