ways in which early films either reinforced or challenged contemporary beliefs regarding race in the societies that watched them.

Early Film: As an inherently visual medium largely dependent upon human actors, film frequently reflects, supports, or questions popular attitudes about race. In an essay of 300- 500 words, discuss the ways in which early films either reinforced or challenged contemporary beliefs regarding race in the societies that watched them. You may wish to discuss Cabiria, The Birth of a Nation, and/or Roman Scandals. A good essay will consider the intended audience for each film and explore the often-implicit messages that elements like casting and costuming send to a viewer.
