        The Birth of a Nation: Projecting Jim Crow | Birth of a Movement

        In this media gallery from INDEPENDENT LENS: "Birth of a Movement" students examine the simultaneous rise of Jim Crow segregation and motion picture technology.  The segment features historians discussing early forms of cinema, and the shift in portrayals of African Americans that occurred with the advent of film projection.  The support materials can be used to introduce students to the stereotypical African American fictional characters that emerged after the Civil War and can help them draw parallels to common images of African Americans in today’s media.
