Scandalize My Name: Stories from the Blacklist is a 1998 documentary film, written and directed by Alexandra Isles. Starring Morgan Freeman, Rosetta LeNoire, and Dick Campbell, the film takes a look at a historically significant time in black history. Beginning in Harlem, measuring the impact of Paul Robeson and the campaigns against him, and ending with a tribute to Canada Lee, the film inspects the intersection of such political factors as the Red Scare, McCarthyism, and blacklists with post-war African American activism. The film looks at those individuals who, through their struggles for more and better positions in radio, television, and on the stage, served to move African American equality forward. Through telling interviews with some of the men and women who participated in the movement, including musician Dick Campbell of the Rose McLendon Players and actor Frederick O'Neal of the American Negro Theater, viewers are offered an honest glimpse into a world that is both long gone and still present in today's opportunities and cultures. Scandalize My Name: Stories from the Blacklist is an eye-opening expose of the intersection, and collaboration, between anti-communist thought and Jim Crow.moreless
