Beyond Black and White
A film by Nisma Zaman
1994, 28 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99431
BEYOND BLACK AND WHITE is a personal exploration of the filmmaker’s bicultural heritage (Caucasian and Asian/Begali) in which she relates her experiences to those of five other women from various biracial backgrounds. In lively interviews and group discussions these women reveal how they have been influenced by images of women in American media, how racism has affected them, and how their families and environments have shaped their racial identities. Their experiences are placed within the context of history, including miscegenation laws and governmental racial classifications. BEYOND BLACK AND WHITE is a remarkable celebration of diversity in American society.


    “Mandatory viewing for anyone interested in issues of hybrid identities, racialized gender, and the politics of location. Perfect for a wide range of classes: sociology, politics, ethnic studies, women’s studies.”
    Patricia Zimmerman
    Ithaca College
