You Belong to Me: An African American Narrative

You Belong to Me is a compelling documentary fil that examined the underpinnings of racism, prejudice, and discrimination in the United States


You Belong to Me is a compelling documentary film that examined the underpinnings of racism, prejudice, and discrimination in the United States. John Cork's superlative and honest writing depicted the dichotomous view of African Americans as free agents endowed with rights versus African Americans as a subordinate group. The film addresses the narrative about racism in America and defines the connection between subordinate groups and learned helplessness, a connection that likely reinforces the glass ceiling for women and African Americans. On the surface, the Ruby McCollum story is a tantalizing tale of sex, murder, and racial tension in the small community of Live Oak, Florida. On a deeper level, however, the writer captured the psychological consequences of racism, passed down from one generation to another. These psychological consequences affect every social organization in the United States.
