Discussion of films depicting the African American slavery experience

Shaheed Haamid hosts a discussion about films depicting the African American slavery experience. "Twelve Years a Slave" just won the Oscar for Best Picture. What issues does it raise for African Americans. Are some films too painful to watch? What happens if a film activates a viewer's PTSD? What are the reactions to other films such as "Django Unchained" and  "Home of the Brave"? Call 503 231-8187 with your thoughts.
