Color adjustment by Marlon T Riggs( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Color Adjustment' is a landmark study of prejudice and perception in the Television Age. ... traces how African Americans were reluctantly 'integrated' into America's prime time family. From 'Amos 'n' Andy' to 'The Cosby Show, ' 'Color Adjustment' explores television's vital role in selling the American Dream, brilliantly illuminating the interplay between America's racial consciousness and the dominant medium of our time. In a blend that is alternatively nostalgic, insightful, and disturbing, the filmmakers weave carefully chosen excerpts from the programs with revealing observations from creators, writers, producers, and performers involved in making them, as well as several prominent cultural critics."--1992 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. This program examines the racial myths, stereotyping, and negative portrayal of blacks on American television from 1948-1988. The negative portrayal of blacks gave white audiences a false impression of what life was like in black America, an impression that wasn't changed until news cameras brought the violence and struggle for civil rights into the American living room. Shows then began to depict blacks in a more realistic setting, illustrating that not all Americans were living the American dream. The program includes clips from many shows on television during those forty years, including the Nat King Cole show; East side, west side; Roots; All in the family; and Good times. The program also contains footage of speeches by Martin Luther King, Jr., President Reagan, and Newton Minow
