Discovery Series: Walt Wolfram

“Talking Black in America” Documentary by Walt Wolfram

Please joins us for the next Discovery Series documentary viewing and Q&A panel streamed live through College of Information's YouTube channel and hosted in GAB 105.

Walt Wolfram, executive producer, presents Talking Black in America. Talking Black in America follows the unique circumstances of the descendants of American slaves and their incredible impact on American life and language. Speech varieties from the African American community reflect the imprint of African language systems, the influences of regional British and Southern American dialects, and the creativity and resilience of people living through oppression, segregation and the fight for equality. Filmed across the United States, Talking Black in America is a startling revelation of language as legacy, identity and triumph over adversity.
