Directed by Marlon Riggs | 1992

An essential companion to Ethnic Notions, Color Adjustment explores black representation in the age of primetime television. Deconstructing cultural touchstones from Amos ’n’ Andy to The Jeffersons to The Cosby Show, this cogent and provocative documentary illuminates how, as portrayals of African-American lives and families became increasingly mainstream, they remained no less insidious, peddling a fantasy vision of the black experience and the myth of the American Dream.

Introduction
Herman Gray, professor of sociology at UC Santa Cruz
