dc.description.abstractCurrent Hollywood films and the history of the Hollywood film industry are examined in order to establish to what extent progress has been made in the representation of African Americans in terms of race, gender, and sexuality. First, the Academy Awards and the position of the white race have been analyzed as they reflect the current status of racism in Hollywood.
