Our guest presenter, Frederick Gooding, will draw our attention to the ways mainstream movies use many larger than life elements in the effort to advance plots and suspend disbelief. Gooding will note the formulaic nature of these movies and how they dictate specific character patterns when it comes to race through a witty and engaging examination of Hollywood movies in our culture. In the process, Gooding will also challenge audiences to think of the reasons behind creating the proliferation of common racial character patterns or archetypes.
