The Premiere of the film that is changing the conversation about the State of Black America! HOODWINKED: We Can No Longer Doubt our Greatness! This documentary deals with dispelling myths about African-Americans.
“HOODWINKED” is a searing examination of the role that myths, stereotypes and misrepresentations have played in the lives of the modern era African American. It deals with negative racial statistics that promote the premise of Black Inferiority, and how organizations manipulate data and information for funding, and as money extracting propositions.
“HOODWINKED” explores how negative imagery in the media, deficit-model activism, and a community disillusioned and ill-informed about its own positive attributes has all led to a dangerous form of negative self and group perception about Black Achievements. The film features commentary and insights from key African-American leaders, activists and educators such as Dr. Steve Perry (TV One’s “Save My Son” & CNN), Dr. Marc Lamont Hill (host of “Our World” on BET), Dr. Boyce Watkins (Prof. of Finance at Penn State) , Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu (Educational Consultant and Author of “Countering The Conspiracy To Destroy Black Boys”) and Dr. Ivory Toldson (Howard University).
“HOODWINKED” challenges many of the negative myths, assumptions and urban legends that have been too often linked with African American Identity; For example, "Are there more black men in jail or in college?" or "What percent of Black Boys drop out of High School?" Finally, “HOODWINKED” culminates with a bone chilling segment where an array of college aged African American Students are asked to “Name a positive stereotype about Black People.” The results are simply shocking as student by student struggles to associate a singular positive attribute of group worth to their own community.
