A Black Sherlock Holmes
Saturday, February 16th at 3:00 PM
A chance to view and discuss a rare all-black cast silent Sherlock Holmes film, right in Plymouth, NH! Traditionally, Holmes is instantly recognizable with his deerstalker hat, meerschaum pipe, and inverness cloak. But what might a black Holmes look like? Professor Ann McClellan will provide a contextual introduction to the film, focusing on vaudeville, silent film history, and the role of ‘race’ films in the 1910s. We will then screen the short 12-minute film, after which Dr. McClellan will facilitate a discussion about how early African-American filmmakers and audiences re-imagined Sherlock Holmes through the lenses of race and nation.
