Scandalize My Name: Stories from the Blacklist

“SCANDALIZE MY NAME provides a searing examination of how “Red Scare” politics were used to hinder America's civil rights movement. This powerful film documents the first-hand experiences of African-American performers faced with blacklists, loyalty oaths and other discrimination. It explores the impact these tactics had on the performers' careers and on civil rights as a whole. Paul Robeson, Jackie Robinson, Harry Belafonte, Ossie Davis, and Canada Lee are among the notable personalities featured.”
