3.) NETWORK Luncheon featuring Frederick Gooding
Noon Feb. 26, Cressman Center, 100 E Main St.
$10
Mainstream movies use many larger-than-life elements to advance plots and suspend disbelief. In “You Mean There’s Race in My Movie?”, Gooding notes how the formulaic nature of these movies dictates specific character patterns when it comes to race through a witty and engaging examination of Hollywood movies in our culture. In the process, he challenges audiences to think of reasons behind the creation and proliferation of these common racial character patterns or archetypes.
