Straight Talk: Gone With The Wind’s Influence on Pop Culture
Date(s) - 13 Sep 2014
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Join moderator Dr. Robert Casanello (UCF) and panelists Julian Chambliss (Rollins College), Barbara Thompson (UCF Diversity Initiative), Maylen Dominguez (Full Sail University), and others for a discussion about the stereotypes portrayed in the 1939 “Gone With the Wind”film, and how popular culture continues to affect our impression of different types of people and cultures. Topics of discussion will include: Scarlett O’Hara, the film’s protagonist, a true Southern Belle, Rhett Butler, a dashing and outcast bachelor who is “not the marrying kind”, Mammy, Scarlett’s nurse and “head woman of the plantation.” We hope you’ll join us for this great “straight talk” event.
