SHORT FILM - "JIM" BY CHRIS BLACK ( A BLACK STUDENT DEALS WITH IMPLICIT RACISM)

 

 A thought-provoking satire, Chris Black's debut short gleefully dives into a series of hot-button American cultural issues in a potent comedy of racial cringe. 

 Charles, a young African-American student, participates in a classroom reading of one of the enduring literary emblems of America's racist legacy, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". Whenever a sentence has the N-word in it, the teacher quickly swoops in to ask Charles to read that section.
