GEBURT EINER NATION ist eines der umstrittensten Meisterwerke der Filmgeschichte. Mit einem gigantischen 110.000 Dollar-Budget und maximalem Werbeaufwand entstand 1915 D.W. Griffiths Monumentalepos über das Schicksal zweier eng befreundeter Familien aus den Nord- und Südstaaten, die in den Wirren des amerikanischen Sezessionskrieges 1861 - 1865 nicht zu Feinden werden wollen. Dass Griffith allerdings seinen wagemutig-sympathischen Helden, den Südstaatler Ben Cameron, ausgerechnet zum Begründer des Ku-Klux-Klan macht, trug ihm nicht zu Unrecht den Vorwurf des Rassismus und der Geschichtsfälschung ein. Unbestritten hingegen bleiben bis heute die zahlreichen Neuerungen, die THE BIRTH OF A NATION in das ästhetische Repertoire des noch jungen Mediums Film einführte. Mit Parallelmontagen, Rückblenden, Ausblenden, Nachtaufnahmen, Kamerafahrten, Panoramaschwenks, rasanten Rhythmisierungen und dramaturgisch meisterhaft choreographierten Massenszenen setzte der Film Maßstäbe...

The strife and horrors of the Civil War in America were raw with the wounds of the war lasting for decades; and affecting those who lived in both the North and the South. As the nation struggled to find unity, the forces of darkness and of those who wished to rule through intimidation and terror, spread their wicked ways under the cover of white sheets. This is the story of the Ku Klux Klan and their chief brand: Lynchings, as told in the original newspaper stories from journals across the nation. Some are brief, telling only of a single attack while others are more comprehensive and detailed, telling the story with the inclusion of complex and emotional occurrences. The attempt of the KKK to cloak the power of control over others with fear and violence is explained in some of these news stories. The chief advocate and leader of the Klan was interviewed by reporters and allowed fair access to give his side of the story. The heroism of various groups such as the NAACP and others who risked their lives standing up to thugs and criminals is also noted, as well as the words of those individuals and leaders who fought to eliminate the influence of the Ku Klux Klan. While the KKK had as much right as any group to demonstrate and articulate their cause, the deceits and criminal actions employed by them separated their group from the legal actions of others. For listeners in the 21st Century who know little of the life and death of the KKK, the admonition to understand and know history in order to avoid repeating it, should be considered. Therefore, it is in that hope that this audiobook has been prepared. WARNING: Authentic descriptions are vivid and brutal and the racially charged language of this historic news reports and commentary has not been modified. This material is for adults and parental guidance is appropriate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew L. Barnes. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012702/bk_acx0_012702_sample.mp3.

Dorchester Days

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The original Dorchester Days is a classic self-published edition, chronicling life in Eugene Richards' home town of Dorchester, Massachusetts, in the 1970s. Although all the photographs are taken within a few streets of each other, the book represents a snapshot of small town America in the 1970s, and as such has a far more wide-reaching resonance. Racial tension, violence, poverty and crime: it is a powerful portrayal of a town and a nation in a state of transition and decline. In this new and revised edition Richards reorders and expands the book from the original edition, tackling subjects such as racism and the Ku Klux Klan head-on in a way that he did not feel able to pursue at the time of the original publication.

Malcolm X was a minister, human rights activist, and a prominent Black Nationalist leader who served as a spokesperson for the Nation of Islam during the 1950s and 1960s. Malcolm X was an articulate orator who stood against racial inequality and police brutality against Black people with his favorite quote “by any means necessary”. Although he and his family were subjected to incessant harassment from white supremacist groups, he wasn’t deterred.He faced racism before he was even born. "When my mother was pregnant with me, she told me later, 'a party of hooded Ku Klux Klan riders galloped up to our home,'" Malcolm later remembered. "Brandishing their shotguns and rifles, they shouted for my father to come out."To protect his family, Earl Little moved them from Omaha to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1926 and then to Lansing, Michigan, in 1928, when he was four years old. After a racist mob set their house ablaze, Malcolm revealed that the White police and firemen stood around watching and refusing to do anything as the house completely burned to the ground in 1929.Until his 1965 assassination, he vigorously supported Black Nationalism. This book gives a detailed review into the exceptional biography of the revolutionary life of the legend Malcolm X, whose fight for the Black nation will continue to be remembered even in death. 1.

Nine of the most controversial violent crimes in America's history are reexamined in these compelling stories of true crime. Dr. Samuel Mudd set John Wilkes Booth's broken ankle, but was he actually part of the larger conspiracy to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln? Did Lizzie Borden brutally murder her own parents in Massachusetts? Was admitted jihadist Zacarias Moussaoui really involved in the terrorist plot to destroy the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001? In a series of provocative and eye-opening true crime investigations, author Fred Rosen revisits some of the most shocking and notorious crimes in America over the past two centuries to determine once and for all...did they really do it? Applying logic and techniques of modern criminology while reexamining the crime scenes, official police records, and the original courtroom testimonies of witnesses and the accused, Rosen explores nine infamous crimes that rocked the nation and the verdicts that were ultimately handed down. From Ethel and Julius Rosenberg's execution for treason to the kidnapping and killing of the Lindbergh baby to the Ku Klux Klan slayings of three civil rights workers in Mississippi to 9/11, the alleged perpetrators get another day in court as Rosen calls into question the circumstantial evidence and cultural context that may have determined guilt or innocence in each case. 1.

Black Klansman: Race, Hate, and the Undercover ...

The number-one New York Times best seller! This extraordinary true story, read by the author, is the basis for the Academy Award winning film BlacKkKlansman, written and directed by Spike Lee, produced by Jordan Peele, and starring John David Washington and Adam Driver.     When detective Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the history of the Colorado Springs Police Department, comes across a classified ad in the local paper asking for all those interested in joining the Ku Klux Klan to contact a PO box, Detective Stallworth does his job and responds with interest, using his real name while posing as a white man. He figures he’ll receive a few brochures in the mail, maybe even a magazine, and learn more about a growing terrorist threat in his community. A few weeks later the office phone rings, and the caller asks Ron a question he thought he’d never have to answer: “Would you like to join our cause?” This is 1978, and the KKK is on the rise in the United States. Its Grand Wizard, David Duke, has made a name for himself, appearing on talk shows and in major magazine interviews preaching a “kinder” Klan that wants nothing more than to preserve a heritage and to restore a nation to its former glory. Ron answers the caller’s question that night with a yes, launching what is surely one of the most audacious and incredible undercover investigations in history. Ron recruits his partner, Chuck, to play the "white" Ron Stallworth while Stallworth himself conducts all subsequent phone conversations. During the months-long investigation, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings, exposes white supremacists in the military, and even befriends David Duke himself.  Black Klansman is an amazing true story that unfolds like a crime thriller and a searing portrait of a divided America and the extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back. 1.
