Nelson Oliver on the African American Dialect

Nelson Oliver on the African American Dialect

Director and screenwriter Nelson Oliver speaks at Pepperdine University Libraries following the premiere of his original short film, The Red Cape, on February 21, 2013. The Red Cape chronicles a little known chapter in American history: the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot, which stands as the only coup d’état, or violent overthrow of a government, in United States history. The incident was a springboard for the Jim Crow laws that disenfranchised black citizens through the 1960s. Oliver appears here in discussion with Dr. Joi Carr, Assistant Professor of English at Pepperdine, to discuss the continuing resonance of this story in American civil right history. This event was cosponsored by the Black Student Association.
