Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Didactics - English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, Dresden Technical University, language: English, abstract: In this paper, it is my objective to examine the characterization of black Americans in Blaxploitation movies to evaluate its influence on the image of African Americans. Not only the cinematic image is to be questioned in this concern, but also the real impression these movies gave to their viewers which also had an impact on the real life, social experience. Thereby, we can differentiate between the black image it produced for blacks, and the impression it left on the white spectators. For this purpose, I will firstly explain the phenomenon of Blaxploitation, its content and structure and name some examples. After that, the historical and social background of this genre is to be analyzed in order to explain how it could emerge and why it vanished as quickly as it came into existence. The depiction of African Americans in film before the 1970s is as important for further comprehension as is the rising political consciousness in the 1960s United States of America which found expression in the Civil Rights Movement.After I have shown the background knowledge concerning Blaxploitation, the description of the image of black people depicted in these movies will follow by analyzing the film "Shaft" and collecting other significant characteristics of this illustration in the genre in general, using the literature on this topic. The analysis will be divided into a plot analysis and a film analysis, whereby the plot will show characteristics which are visible by a mere reflection of the storyline and setting. The film analysis afterwards will have to find said aspects in selected scenes from the movie itself. As the most appropriate books for the paper's intention, I chose "Framing Blackness" by Ed Guerrero and "Black and White Media" by Karen Ross. Another interesting work, which suits as an informal guide to various Blaxploitation films, is the book "That's Blaxploitation!" by Darius James. Furthermore, the role and portrayal of women in these films is to be observed concerning the books by Ross and Guerrero and the analysis of "Shaft".On this basis, I want to consider in the end whether the genre of Blaxploitation had a more positive or negative impact on the cinematic and real image of African Americans, whereas this conclusion will presumably not be a simple statement of good or bad. Moreover, it is to be seen whether and how it influenced the social life of American black citizens and the future cinematic illustration of African Americanism. [...]
