Online Learning Class via Zoom

This course examines how media arts has been used to portray and influence contemporary American social justice movements. Topics will include media from the Southern desegregation movement, civil rights marches, Black power movement, Vietnam war footage, photojournalism, anti-war protests, LGBTQ rights, Black Lives Matter and more. We will also discuss images and messages created during the Civil Rights era – the 2021 Capitol Building riot.

In class we will view and discuss photography, films, videos and news footage related to social justice. Artists covered will include Ava DuVernay, Eddie Adams, Spike Lee, Ruddy Roye and Stephen Shames. We will also discuss the power of social media platforms and citizen documentarians like Darnella Frazier, who filmed the murder of George Floyd with her cell phone.

Outside of class, students will capture or create media that addresses social justice issues of their choice. The assignments will give students the opportunity to share their perspectives about an issue and experiment with a variety of mediums and genres. The images will be shared and critiqued during the class.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students
