Birth of a Nation (1915) Reconsidered Tell a Friend about this Course

D. W. Griffith's 1915 masterpiece is suddenly relevant again. Does our country need to reevaluate its thinking on race, the Civil War, white supremacy and, in general, how we view America? This landmark film, is both the cornerstone of modern cinema, and one of the most virulently racist documents in our country's history. See the entire film, in the just released new restoration, complete with a new recording of the brilliant musical score. Discuss the surprising new relevance as history is currently repeating itself. See the birth of our current issues at the beginning of the modern era.
