This storyboard does not have a description.
Our plan is to film different scenes with stereotypical references of Latinos and African Americans without showing the characters face and in the end of the video having the viewer guess the characters race based on what they saw.
WHAT'S MY RACE?
First scene focuses on Jessica, unknown race. She wakes up to see her alarm going off and that she has an interview for a house cleaning job. She proceeds to get dressed in stereotypical Latino clothing (i.e. Jordan's, skinny jeans, UGGS, Hunters)
Next scene we see Jessica type in directions to her destination starting from an inner city address driving to the suburban "rich" area of the city. She meets with classy white woman and her son Able. Greets son with a wave. Then we would go into further detail about her duties as the house maid and what the high class white woman would expect of her.
We also plan on having other point of view examples to go along with our display of prejudice and media influence of characterization
Fade out and go to a new scene of a person in a car, ethnicity unknown. The character is playing rap music and is in an old school car in a rough neighborhood. Then the character goes to play basketball with friends most happen to be African American. We see a shot of the characters shoes (Jordans/Nikes).
Next we plan on showing the clips that we created in which you never see the actual characters face and simply only hear their voice, what race they think the characters are. We then ask them why they came to this conclusion and what influenced this decision. Continue to ask them what media sources might have lead them to make this decision. Was it due to what TV shows you, movies, other forms of media?
We would then as a group discus the different types of stereotypes and different experiences we have all experienced and how this class has changed our own individual outlook on the stereotypes our environment has provided for Latinos and African Americans
