Description

"Slave Cabins Seen Through a Hollywood Lens"

Since Hollywood’s earliest films, rare cinematic depictions of slave dwellings have provided an image of slave habitations for many Americans. From Edwin Porter’s 1903 silent film portrayal of Uncle Tom’s Cabin through director Steve McQueen’s 2013 award-winning film 12 Years a Slave, museum educator Julie Rose, Ph.D., will explore how slave life dwellings represented on film changed over the century. Rose is director and curator of Homewood Museum and the author of Interpreting Difficult History at Museums and Historic Sites (American Association for State and Local History, 2016).

5:30 p.m. Reception at Homewood Museum
6:30 p.m. Lecture at Gilman Hall (in Room 50, the Marjorie M. Fisher Hall)
