African American Studies Committee Film Series presents The Help
Film screening and discussion.
Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960s is the setting for this movie that focuses on Black women working as maids for white women. They regarded them as second-class citizens, held down by the Color Line. Today, many Blacks in Ferguson, MO and beyond believe that the larger society is still treating them as second-class citizens. The viewing of The Help might place us in a greater position to move beyond the Color Line and its injustices.
