Black Actors in American Cinema

Students examine the contributions of a few African American actors. After watching different films, they work together to recreate the film and the struggles faced by the actors. In groups, they compare and contrast the acting style of the different actors. To end the lesson, they identify the stereotypes used in films to represent African Americans.
