BLACK IN THE FRAME

An interactive moving image education project for GCSE and A level Media Studies students exploring black representation in film.

This actor lead drama is set in 1930's Hollywood. A conflict between a white producer and black film director leads the students to explore the changing role of black actors and directors in the film industry. Students view material from the BFI National Film and Television Archive, illustrating the history of black representation from Birth of a Nation (1905) to the Littlest Rebel (1935).
