Ethnic Notions looks at the portrayal of African Americans in American pop culture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This Emmy award-winning documentary takes viewers on a disturbing voyage through American history, tracing the evolution of the deeply rooted stereotypes that have fueled anti-Black prejudice. Ethnic Notions was directed by Marlon Riggs, who, in addition to being a filmmaker, was also a poet, an educator and an activist.

Ethnic Notions is being shown as a part of the Black Cinema Film Series. In collaboration with Blk-Art, History & Culture, the Washington Park Library will present award-winning documentaries highlighting African American history and achievement throughout the year. Screenings will be presented with discussion sessions and are free and open to the public.
