SARAH LARSON LECTURE SERIES

presents

Badass Films

Faculty, bring your classes!

 

Sarah Larson Lecture Series kicks off the 2017 academic year with a lively lecture about Blaxploitation in cinema by 

 

Professor Paul Gaustad


Badass Films will explore the decades-old, cinema genre known as Blaxploitation, which Gaustad says featured strong, but flawed African-American characters who, at the time, were at war with traditional American values. His talk will address the historical and sociological interpretations of this genre and feature provocative clips from what he calls some “badass” films.
