The DuSable Museum of African American History

Hoodwinked: Screening/Q&A with Janks Morton

“Hoodwinked”- The much anticipated and long awaited sequel to the 2007 Best African American Documentary “What Black Men Think”

“For over 400 years, the majority of white society has used many tools to reinforce a message that the peoples of African descent are less-than, not-equal-to, or not-good enough. In this modern era of information, the media, government and special interests use statistics to further promote the message of Black inferiority. What troubles me most, is that we as a people have internalized the misinformation, embraced the myths, and perpetuated the stereotypes, sadly reinforcing a collective misperception of our own identities.” Janks Morton, Jr.

Followed by a Q&A with Janks Morton Jr.
