Professor Kevin Noble Maillard Publishes “Erased Onscreen: Where are all the Interracial Couples?” at New York Times

Posted on Tuesday 3/7/2017

Professor of Law Kevin Noble Maillard contributed the essay “Erased Onscreen: Where are all the Interracial Couples?” to the New York Times.

In the article, Noble Maillard states, “Interracial love is the complicated, unacknowledged silence of the American past. The overwhelming lack of these stories onscreen reveals a tacit cinematic apartheid that insists upon racial separation. The absence of these accounts wordlessly validates the impossibility of integration at the most intimate, personal level. It is the duty of film and art to fill these narrative voids.”
