Watch Spike Lee’s daring and uncompromising media satire Bamboozled (2000, 136 min.), whose takedown of stereotypical and pernicious portrayals of Black people remains relevant almost twenty-five years after its release. Media scholar Racquel Gates gives an introduction to the film before the screening.
