For many years black actors had the choice of either being unemployed or playing rapists, murderers, slaves or maids in racist films like Birth of a Nation. Even after fighting for their country in World War II, conditions for Black people in Hollywood and the country at large did not improve and it was only the arrival of Sidney Poitier that demonstrated to audiences that Hollywood was finally prepared to portray black characters as dignified and articulate. This course is designed to illustrate how the slow rise in the position of Blacks and Latinos in American society was reflected in Hollywood films.

Who can book?

Our weekend courses are open to participants over the age of 18 and courses are taught at approximately first-year undergraduate level. No academic qualifications are required and most courses are suitable for students who are new to the subject. Please ensure that you complete any required reading listed in your course materials before the course starts to enable you to fully participate and get the maximum enjoyment out of your course.

English language requirements

If your first language is not English, you will need to satisfy yourself that you have the required near-native command of the language to get the maximum benefit from studying with us.

Accessibility for students with support requirements

We make every effort both to anticipate and to make reasonable adjustments to meet the needs of students with support requirements including those with unseen disabilities, including mental health conditions, and specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia.

Please ensure you let us know about any support requirements when booking so that we can offer you the support and advice you require before your course starts, enabling a smooth transition to your studies.

If when booking you indicate that you require additional support, you will be sent a Student Additional Requirements Form (SARF) to complete. The form asks for further details about your requirements and support needs, and requests that you submit supporting evidence.
