Shadow of the Plantation
"This is a very strong and persuasive, even compelling narrative. Donovan's argument is clearly presented, well documented and convincing to the reader. Moreover the writer is able to demonstrate that this is a very important and significant issue, far greater than the question of a single film being scuttled. The relative merit of the film is not the central issue of the case bit rather the question of whether the merit was fairly and openly determined by Australian Film Commision personnel and procedures." Emeritus Professor, Donald Shea College of Letters and Science, Department of Political Science University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee December, 1998.
Shadow of the Plantation focuses on descendants of slaves in one rural Southern community in the early part of this century. In the process, Johnson reviews the troubled history of race relations in the United /States. When reread half a century after it was first written, Shadow of the Plantation is clearly revealed as a remarkably perceptive and fresh comment on race relations and the triumph of individuals over circumstances.Charles Johnson's book is significant for its use of multiple methodologies. The research took place in an ecological setting that was a dynamic element of the life of the community. The book is a multifaceted, interpretive survey of the 612 black families that composed the rural community of Macon County, Alabama, in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Johnson...
Or perhaps Katherine. Trawling The Age 's new interactive database of Victoria's top 100 names for the past 90 years reveals a host of quirky facts, such as most popular spellings, the names that are likely to get you confused for someone of the opposite gender, and... The Locomotion derails the Kylie train. The name Kylie was doing great until Kylie Minogue came along. It had spent 21 years in the top 100, peaking at number three in the mid-’70s, and was still sitting pretty at 15 in 1987. That was the same year Charlene married Scott in Neighbours , helping the elder Minogue sister become the youngest Gold... But while Kylie herself kept hitting the high notes - launching her debut album in 1988 entitled, you guessed it, Kylie - her name endured one of the fastest falls from grace in Victorian history. Like the slow and steady turtle, Katherine emerged from running a poor and distant third to become the preferred option since the early 1980s, although the name has dwindled in popularity this century. Perhaps because no one was confident how to spell it. I’m so sorry sir/madam. Still, having your name constantly misspelt is probably not the worst thing that can happen to you. Take, for example, being constantly mistaken for someone of the wrong gender. While pop music success appears to spell death for a name ( Brittany curiously disappeared from the charts just as Britney Spears arrived), that’s not true of all pop culture references. Bella debuted at an unusually high 48 in 2005, the same year Stephanie Meyer’s fantasy Twilight series, featuring Bella Swan, was launched. Meanwhile, Brandon debuted at 48 also in 1992. Beverly Hills 90210 first screened in the US in October 1990.
