Title of Project: My Final Girl: The Black Women in American Horror Cinema

Inspiration Behind the Project:

It begins by tracing the roots of Black Women’s representation in the United States of America. This framework is used to review social constructs, which have influenced choices in media regarding race and gender depictions in Horror Films. This thesis also reviews the pocketed segments of Black participation in Horror during Race Films of the 1940’s and Blaxploitation Films of the 1970’s.
