3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commercial motion pictures were invented at the Edison Laboratory between 1888 and 1893. Perhaps none of the component parts were strictly new, but the ability of Edison and his staff to reorganize them for a specific purpose was an extraordinary cultural achievement. In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland

Black is... black ain't : a personal journey through black identity( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final film by filmmaker Marlon Riggs, Black is ... black ain't, jumps into the middle of explosive debates over Black identity. Black is ... black ain't is a film every African American should see, ponder and discuss. White Americans have always stereotyped African Americans. But the rigid definitions of "Blackness" that African Americans impose on each other, Riggs claims, have also been devastating. Is there an essential Black identity? Is there a litmus test defining the real Black man and true Black woman? Riggs uses his grandmother's gumbo as a metaphor for the rich diversity of Black identities. His camera traverses the country, bringing us face to face with Black folks young and old, rich and poor, rural and urban, gay and straight, grappling with the paradox of numerous, often contested definitions of Blackness. Riggs mixes performances by choreographer Bill T. Jones and poet Essex Hemphill with commentary by noted cultural critics Angela Davis, Bell Hooks, Cornel West, Michele Wallace, Barbara Smith and Maulana Karenga to create a flavorful stew of personal testimony, music, and history. While Black is ... black ain't rejoices in Black diversity, many speakers bare their pain at having been silenced or excluded because they were perceived as "not Black enough" or conversely "too Black." Black is ... black ain't marshals a powerful critique of sexism, patriarchy, homophobia, colorism and cultural nationalism in the Black family, church and other Black institutions. Cornel West concludes, "We've got to conceive of new forms of community. We each have multiple identities and we're moving in and out of various communities at the same time. There is no one grand Black community." Riggs' own urgent quest for self-definition and community, as a Black gay man dying from AIDS, ties the multiple perspectives together. Hooked up to an IV in his hospital bed, Riggs takes strength for his struggle against AIDS from the continual resilience of the African Americans in the face of overwhelming oppression. As his death nears, he conjures up the image of a Black community nurturing and celebrating the difference and creativity in each one of us
Black feminism : anthologie du féminisme africain-américain, 1975-2000( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in French and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les textes présentés dans ce recueil du Black feminism - le premier en France - explorent sur une période de trente ans les thèmes de l'identité, de l'expérience singulière, de la sororité, de la sexualité, comme la place dans les institutions, les coalitions nécessaires et les alliances possibles, les formes culturelles de rébellion et de lutte, le passage de témoin entre générations. Pourquoi, en France, ex-puissance coloniale, l'équivalent d'un féminisme noir n'a-t-il pas existé ? Ces textes, par leur vitalité et leur perspicacité politiques, invitent à poser cette question et à s'interroger autrement sur les faux-semblants de l'universalisme républicain comme sur les points aveugles du féminisme français."
Multi-cultural literacy( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: The issue of cultural literacy has been the subject of intense debate in the past two years. Several bestselling books about the deficiencies of our educational system as well as changes in basic curriculum at more than one major university have contributed to the fervor of this debate. Fueling the national controversy is the question of what body of knowledge constitutes cultural literacy. While many argue for a return to a "back to basics" curriculum, equally energetic voices call for a revised curriculum, one which embraces both traditional western classics and the classics of non-European cultures, among them African, Asian, and Latin American. This volume brings together thirteen essays which suggest the range of knowledge truly literate individuals need to possess. Essays by such writers as James Baldwin, Carlos Fuentes, Michelle Cliff, Paula Gunn Allen, Ishmael Reed, and Wendell Berry enlarge our perspective to include a variety of voices and heritages which contribute to the vibrant culture of the United States. Also included is a beginning list of names, places, dates, and concepts which are part and parcel of a multi-cultural fabric

Invisibility blues : from pop to theory by Michele Wallace( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1990, Michele Wallace's Invisibility Blues is widely regarded as a landmark in the history of black feminism. Wallace's considerations of the black experience in America include a look at the continued underrepresentation of black voices in politics, media, and culture, and legacy of figures such as Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Cade Bambara, Toni Morrison, and Alice Walker, Wallace addresses the tensions between race, gender, and society, bringing them into the open with a singular mix of literary virtuosity and scholarly rigour. Invisibility Blues challenges and informs with the plain-spoken truth that has made it an acknowledged classic"--Back cover
