Directed by Marlon Riggs | 1992
“An entertaining, barbed look at television's failed attempts at realistically portraying African-Americans.”
—Los Angeles Times

Narrated by the great Ruby Dee, Color Adjustment is a stunning examination of the interplay between America's racial consciousness and network programming, tracing 40 years of race relations through the lens of primetime entertainment. Scrutinizing the racial myths and stereotypes perpetuated by television, director Riggs asks the viewer to consider favorites like Julia, Good Times, Roots, and The Cosby Show in a new way, with revelatory, thought-provoking results.
