Welsch and Adams (both Western Illinois U.) present educators, librarians, students, and other film viewers with brief synopses and critiques of 150-plus motion pictures addressing issues of race and ethnicity in the U.S. Organized into sections by race/ethnic group—African American, Arab American and Middle Eastern American, Asian American, European American, Latino/a American, Native American, and intercultural—the individual film listings include the title; year the film was released; director; cast; length; rating; type of film; summary of the plot; aspects of the film that relate to race/ethnicity, and where relevant, ways that gender, sexuality, or class come into play; and suggestions for use of the film in a course or discussion.
