Eric presented by the Smithsonian: TV Shows and Films on Race to Watch Right Now
November 12, 2020 6:45 pm - 9:15 pm
Presented as part of the Smithsonian Associates Streaming Series: NPR TV critic and author Eric Deggans sheds light on some of the most important television shows and movies on race and culture to watch right now. From HBO’s “The Wire” and “Watchmen” to Netflix’s “When They See Us,” Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" and Sidney Poitier's "In the Heat of the Night," Deggans discusses how to evaluate such material for its treatment of themes involving race and culture, and examines how structural racism can distort media messages.
