SCANDALIZE MY NAME (Stories from the BlackList) - A Must See [Documentary]

Make sure you check out the following documentary. It is very informative giving the audience a personal look inside the entertainment business at a time when racism and discrimination ran rampant. It really illustrates how far our society has come in this area and how much further we still have to go. It is not over. Don't ever think just because we have a Black President that all of our problems will cease. OHHHH NOOO! Don't be deceived ... or bamboozled...! Just because there aren't anymore sirens that doesn't mean the war is over. Yet I digress. Please check out the documentary. It is a must see!

Directed and Written by Alexandra Isles

Scandalize My Name provides a searing examination of how "Red Scare" politics were used to hinder America's civil rights movement. This powerful film documents the first-hand experiences of African-American performers faced with blacklists, loyalty oaths and other discrimination. It explores the impact these tactics had on the performers' careers and on civil rights as a whole. Paul Robeson, Jackie Robinson, Harry Belafonte, Ossie Davis, and Dick Campbell are just a few of the notable personalities featured. ~ Scott Albright, All Movie Guide
