The Obama Era: The Invisible Man 2008-16

The last talk in the series looks at movies made after 2008 when Barack Obama was elected as the first black President of the United States. This was a momentous event in American history but those high hopes waned in part because Obama, the avatar of another New Frontier, couldn't be found and wasn't allowed to exist.
