Student’s Name Instructor’s Name Course Date Case Study: Portrayal of Black Masculinity in Blaxploitation Films Introduction Historically American film history had been hegemonically controlled by white male producers directors audiences and even writers. Even when popular Hollywood films included the ‘othered’ groups they presented condemning prejudiced and humiliating stereotypes instead of celebrating the differences that exist between people. The Blaxploitation films which arose in the 1960s and ‘70s marked critical developments in American culture. They were a series of action film specifically composed for the black audiences in the United States in both the independent and mainstream sector (Howell 29). The films offered to overblow fantasies of black heroism and power that were filmed yet they became the object of heated debate among commentators as well as social leaders for their projection of the image of blackness. Although the Blaxploitation films gave the black community a new sense of important as it offered black males and females to be main characters directors crew and writers in Hollywood for the first time. This paper has explored how these movies portrayed black males as hypersexual and aggressive beings. Sadly the Blaxploitation films created new fantasies and stereotypes about black masculinity.

I uploaded a picture of the details and attached it to the order. My professor is a writing enthusiast and studies every detail in his student's assignments. My writing style is kind of raw and basic, meaning I don't use fancy writing methods and I get straight to the point. I need this paper to fit my writing style to avoid detection. Feel free to ask me any questions.
