Dr. Paula Uruburu on “Gone With the Wind” Anniversary


The film Gone With the Wind will be screened in theaters across the country this Sunday, September 28, and next Wednesday, October 1, in honor of its 75th anniversary. While the movie has earned a place in cinematic history, Dr. Uruburu, professor of English, points out in this Newsday article that its depiction of slaves as happy and cared for was inaccurate. “If you compare it to, let’s say, 12 Years a Slave, you can see the huge cultural gap from when this film was made to that film,” she says.
