    THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Film and Discussion

    The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson was the first hit Hollywood film musical with synchronized sound. Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Watch the film and then join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
