Emory Cinematheque presents for Spring 2020
African-Americans in American Film
Claudine (dir. John Berry, 1974; 92 min.)
Legendary actress Diahann Carroll stars as Claudine, a poor, single mother of six, living in New York City and working as a maid in the suburbs. A welfare recipient, Claudine must hide any signs of material gain including her soon-to-be boyfriend Rupert (James Earl Jones), a trash collector with a problematic past who hesitates to become a father to six children. Will their romance survive the reality of raising six kids, government interference and the pitfalls of being poor and Black in America?
