Race : the power of an illusion by Llewellyn Smith( Visual )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 1,942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series challenges one of our most fundamental beliefs: that humans come divided into a few distinct biological groups, telling an eye-opening tale of how what we assume to be normal, commonsense, even scientific, is actually shaped by our history, social institutions and cultural beliefs. Episode one explores how recent scientific discoveries have toppled the concept of biological race. Episode two questions the belief that race has always been with us. It traces the race concept to the European conquest of the Americas. Episode three focuses on how our institutions shape and create race
Ethnic Notions by Marlon T Riggs( Visual )

27 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in English and held by 1,827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering more than one hundred years of United States history, traces the evolution of Black American caricatures and their role in political and social conflicts concerning race. Examines specific stereotypes in detail: loyal Toms, carefree Sambos, faithful mammies, grinning coons, savage brutes, and wide-eyed pickaninnies to trace the deeply-rooted stereotypes which have fueled anti-black prejudice throughout American history. The documentary interweaves minstrel shows, greeting cards, advertisements, popular songs, cartoons, films and household artifacts showing caricatured blacks with wooly hair, swollen lips, and bulging eyes, shuffling, dancing and attending to whites with grateful servility. Links each stereotype to the dominant white society's shifting needs to justify black oppression

Black gold by Nick Francis( Visual )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethiopia is the largest producer of coffee in Africa. Over 15 million people in Ethiopia depend on coffee for their survival and it provides 67% of Ethiopia's export revenue. Tadesse Meskela manages Oromia Coffee Farmers Co-operative Union, representing over 74,000 coffee farmers. The supply of coffee on the world market used to be regulated by the International Coffee Agreement, until its collapse in 1989. Since then, the price paid to farmers has fallen to a 30 year low. For every $3 cup of coffee, a coffee farmer receives only 3 cents. Most of the money goes to the middlemen, especially the four giant conglomerates which control the coffee market. This film traces the path of the coffee consumed each day to the farmers who produce the beans, and asks consumers to 'wake up and smell the coffee', to face the unjust conditions under which our favorite drink is produced, and to do something about it
James Baldwin : the price of the ticket by Karen Thorsen( Visual )

10 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film presents a look at the life and influence of author James Baldwin (1924-1987), at once a major twentieth century American author, a Civil Rights activist and, for two crucial decades, a prophetic voice calling Americans, Black and white, to confront their shared racial tragedy. Combining archival footage, home movies, television clips, and interviews with friends, family members, and colleagues, as well as readings from his works and scenes from his plays, this documentary captures the passionate intellect and courageous writing of a man who was born Black, impoverished, gifted and gay. Born in Harlem, the eldest of nine children, Baldwin wrote his first play at age eight and went on to write such influential works as Go tell it on the mountain, Giovanni's room, Another country, and The fire next time. This documentary discusses his life in France and Turkey, his homosexuality and his return to the U.S. to participate in the Civil Rights Movement. This comprehensive biography concludes with his death from cancer in 1987 and his funeral at New York's St. John the Divine. Among those who reminisce about the author are Maya Angelou, Amiri Baraka, Ishmael Reed, William Styron, and Baldwin's biographer David Leeming
Maquilapolis = City of Factories by Vicky Funari( Visual )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using video diaries kept by two women promotoras (community activists), this documentary explores the environmental devastation and urban chaos of Tijuana's maquiladoras, the multinationally owned factories that came to Mexico for cheap labor. Maquiladora workers--overwhelmingly women--produce televisions, electrical cables, toys, clothes, batteries and IV tubes; they weave the very fabric of life for consumer nations. They also confront labor violations, toxic waste dumps, and the unhealthy conditions in the colonias where they live. As globalization turns workers into a commodity that can be bought anywhere in the world for the lowest price, the stories of Carmen and Lourdes illustrate what can be accomplished with determination and faith in the future

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

20 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American culture has stereotyped black Americans for centuries. Equally devastating, the late Marlon Riggs argued, have been the definitions of "blackness" African Americans impose upon one another which contain and reduce the black experience. In this film, Riggs meets a cross-section of African Americans grappling with the paradox of numerous, often contradictory definitions of blackness. He shows many who have felt uncomfortable and even silenced within the race because their complexion, class, sexuality, gender or speech has rendered them "not black enough," or conversely, "too black."

"Frantz Fanon: Black Skin, White Mask explores for the first time on film the pre-eminent theorist of the anti-colonial movements of this century.

Jean-Paul Sartre recognized Fanon as the figure "through whose voice the Third World finds and speaks for itself." This innovative film biography restores Fanon to his rightful place at the center of contemporary discussions around post-colonial identity"--California Newsreel
