The Black And White Minstrel Show
About this deal
The Corporation’s Chief Accountant, Barrie Thorne – who, significantly, had spent some time in the BBC’s New York office and so had seen something of the Civil Rights movement – argued vociferously for the show to be pulled from the schedule. It marked a turning point away from public discussions of blacking up, racism, and representation in Britain.
White producers and audiences instead asserted their authority to define what was, or was not, racist on British screens through claims of colour-blindness, while audiences of colour were denied this. Among the various activities that we have planned for the biennium 2017/18, there is the Pet Therapy, for children and people with disabilities, but also for adults or older people who want to find an inner balance.People who are already racially prejudiced are more likely to be exacerbated by the protest itself than the object of the protest.
