The Skirball Cultural Center June 11, 2023 BEHIND THE BLACKLIST film and discussion program moderated by AKR.

About the Program

See how prejudice manifested during the Hollywood Red Scare with a double feature that looks at antisemitism in the 1940s. Waging a “cold war” on minority groups, the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) used the Hearings to target Jews and other oppressed peoples, whether or not evidence of their involvement with the Communist Party existed.

In between films, hear from film historian Alan Rode and Thomas Doherty, professor of American studies at Brandeis University and cultural historian focusing on Hollywood cinema.

PROGRAM SCHEDULE

12:45 pm—Conversation and Q&A with Thomas Doherty
