In Anne Moody’s autobiography, we get a very personal look at racism and Civil Rights movement. In Dr. Strangelove, we see a farcical treatment of Cold War and nuclear threat: director Stanley Kubrick thought the idea that humans might actually destroy themselves because of political disagreement was so tragic that it was ridiculous.
Civil rights formed an important factor in American Cold War foreign policy: how could America talk about freedom and democracy when the South still segregated and violently prevented African Americans from voting? For millions of Americans, this injustice was part of their everyday life.
This unit’s discussion is very broad. Meditate on experiencing the Civil Rights and Cold War -era through these two works. What does Moody and this movie tell you about the culture, mindset, worries, values, politics, and aspirations of the 1950s-1960s? How each work helps you to understand the United States of this time period?
