Spike Lee's "Bamboozled"

Oxy Cinematheque presents a screening and discussion of Spike Lee's "Bamboozled."


Anthony Sparks, adjunct assistant professor of art history and visual arts, introduces Lee's film while asking a series of questions: What are the risks of chowing blackface, even in a critical context? What are the risks of not showing such minstrel iconography? What about African-Americans in blackface in contemporary cinema?
