Hard Knock Radio logoHere’s pt1  of  Hard Knock Radio round table discussion on Black media images, Django and beyond…We covered an array of topics ranging from the historical breakdowns and distortions about in the institution of slavery as found in movies like Lincoln and Django and what that means when such misinformation is presented to the larger society..

We also talked about the types of efforts used when marketing movies and culture in general and why we can never afford to simply say ‘It’s Just a Movie’… We talked about the impact of landmark films like Sankofa, Roots, Superfly, Spook Who sat by the Door, Spartacus,  and the Legend of Nigger Charlie

We also talked about the impact movies are having on students since several of our guests teach courses on, film, media and Black images..

  1. I would hope this clears a few things for all these people who seem to think this movie and these slave dolls are such a great thing.
    I notice how so many are repeating this line some of you need to get over slavery and move into the future and present time now.
    As they say that there is no mention of all the black people locked up in these updated prison plantations on these fake gun charges these fake crack cocaine possession charges.
    A vast % of black’s know that the cia was really behind crack in the hood,plus all the high tech guns that were used in the drivebys and other gang type killings
