Thanks for another great symposium!

The Black Film Center/Archive would like to thank everyone who came to take part in the celebration of the films Nothing But a Man and The Spook Who Sat by the Door.  We were delighted to be able to meet Sam Greenlee (author of the novel, The Spook Who Sat by the Door) and Bob Young (producer and writer of Nothing But a Man).

We would also like to thank our scholars: Terri Francis (Yale University), Khalil Muhammad (Indiana University), Devorah Heitner (Lake Forest College), Karen Bowdre (Indiana University), Marilyn Yaquinto (Truman State University), Frederick McElroy (Indiana University), and Lamont Yeakey (California State University, Los Angeles).  Without these scholars and our moderators, David Wall and Michael T. Martin, we would not have had such rich, interesting, and (at times) heated discussions about these two films.

About BFC/A

The Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University was established in 1981 as the first archival repository dedicated to collecting, preserving, and making available historically and culturally significant films by and about black people. The BFC/A's primary objectives are to promote scholarship on black film and to serve as an open resource for scholars, researchers, students, and the general public; to encourage creative film activity by independent black filmmakers; and to undertake and support research on the history, impact, theory, and aesthetics of black film traditions.
