Student Perspectives: Judas and the Black Messiah (dir. Shaka King)
During our recent episode on Judas and the Black Messiah, Professor Bill Resh spoke about using the film as part of his course on citizenship.
We thought it would be great to revisit the film and see how well this worked. So, today we’re revisiting Judas and the Black Messiah with students from his course! We’ll ask about the different theories of citizenship, how they felt the film portrayed the time, and their thoughts on today’s BLM movement.
