News Reel: Mixed Race

Uploaded on Sunday 23 January 2011


A News Reel featuring a mixed-race Chinese man in 1933. It reveals some of the racist, xenophobic and ethnocentric ideologies of the 1930s. It identifies this man as a sort of oddity because of his Chinese background despite very Caucasian features. A very early look at issues of race, ethnicity and identity and how those things were socially constructed during this era.
