With the rise of Blaxploitation films during the peak of the Civil Rights Movement, it aimed to justify and recognize Black culture and empower the community by portraying stronger independent characters. This trend continued as television shows like the Black sitcoms, Good Times and The Jeffersons, gave the community a collective empowerment and opinion as they were able to identify with characters on the big screen; something they have not been able to do before.

The Lens of Reality: Problematizing Black Spectatorship

Diawara suggests that, to some degree, the terms resisting spectator and black spectator are interchangeable, for many African American filmgoers long have had to resist and negotiate with the ways in which they historically have been represented on the silver screen. Furthermore, one can certainly understand how this form of spectatorship can and should extend to other forms of popular culture. Therefore, as consumers, we should constantly analyze and critique popular culture. As such, the goal of Resisting Spectator is to do just that: offer critical analyses of popular culture.
