A Role Worth Playing: Norman Studios, Representations, and the History of Cinema in Jacksonville

Join Professor of History Wes Moody for a discussion of the history of silent film in Jacksonville and the important role Norman Studios played in offering African-Americans the opportunity to play something other than racial stereotypes. The presentation will be followed by a screening of The Flying Ace, the sole surviving film from Norman Studios, which features an all-black cast and the story of a WWI veteran who returns home only to be drawn into the investigation of a train robbery.

This event will is hosted by FSCJ South Campus LLC, and will take place in G306 inside the Library.
