After the “Red Scare” of the 1930s and '40s, the House Un-American Activities Committee began investigating the movie industry resulting in a decades-long “blacklist” of writers, actors and directors. We will take a close look at the impact of the blacklist on the Hollywood creative community and the implications for today. Attendance at the first session is required.
