Bloomfield College to Screen Talking Black in America with Special Guest

Talking Black in America

By Alicia Cook

The Bloomfield College Divisions of Humanities and Creative Arts & Technology have announced a special screening of Talking Black in America on Thursday, February 22, 2018 from 4:00 - 5:45 p.m. Doors open at 3:30 p.m.

Produced by the Language and Life Project at North Carolina State University, Talking Black in America details the history and social force of African American English today through contemporary and historical footage and interviews with linguists, educators, historians, and speakers of Black English.

“This film combines vital research, real-world experiences, and artistic uses of African American English. The filmmakers reexamine past controversies about teaching Black English speakers in Oakland California while bringing to life the story of Black English in America from the Middle Passage to the Great Migration of the 20th century to rap and spoken word poetry,” said Dr. Nora McCook, Assistant Professor of Writing at Bloomfield College. “Students, educators, policy and media makers, and citizens of this country alike will gain from learning this history of language in the United States and from examining our own understandings and beliefs about language.”

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Dr. Renée Blake, Associate Professor of Linguistics and Social & Cultural Analysis at NYU, who is also featured in the film.

The screening will be held in the campus’ Black Box Studio, located in the Center for Technology+Creativity. The College asks that guests enter through the Library.

The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. To reserve your seat, please RSVP here.
