KAKE WALK the tradition

BLACKFACE the issue

Join us as we examine blackface and UVM's once popular minstrel tradition Kake Walk through a film screening of Spike Lee's Bamboozled. A pre-screening presentation will include a brief history of Kake Walk, an exploration of racist visual vocabulary, and a look at the resurgence of these themes. A discussion will follow the film.

Organized by the Center for Digital Initiatives, the Fleming Museum, and the Center for Cultural Pluralism. The CDI's forthcoming collection Kake Walk at UVM will featured digitized archival material, and will launch on September 16th.
