The Hollywood Ten: Silver Screen Blacklisting during the Red Scare

I'm thrilled to be teaching The Hollywood Ten: American Blacklisting

We'll examine the case of the infamous "Hollywood Ten" - a group of gifted film writers and directors who lost their jobs and were denied employment for many years because of their political beliefs or associations, real or suspected. This course focuses on the silver screen as blacklisting moved on to Hollywood, discussing how the 1950s McCarthy era “Red Scare” impacted the whole country. Mature Learning classes are for people age 55 and older.
