Summary
Covering more than one hundred years of United States history, traces the evolution of Black American caricatures and their role in political and social conflicts concerning war. The documentary interweaves minstrel shows, greeting cards, advertisements, popular songs, cartoons, films and household artifacts showing caricatured blacks with wooly hair, swollen lips, and bulging eyes, shuffling, dancing and attending to whites with grateful servility. Links each stereotype to the dominant white society's shifting needs to justify black oppression
