Donald Bogle is the leading authority on Black images and representation in films, television and entertainment. His ten books include Hollywood Black: The Stars, The Films, The Filmmakers, now being adapted into an MGM docu-series; Brown Sugar: Over 100 Years of America’s Black Female Superstars, which Bogle adapted into a PBS documentary series; the award-winning Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams: The Story of Black Hollywood; and best-selling biographies of Dorothy Dandridge and Ethel Waters. A frequent guest and commentator on Turner Classic Movies, he was the recipient of the Robert Osborne award at this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood. His groundbreaking book Toms, Coons, Mulattoes, Mammies and Bucks: An Interpretive History of Blacks in American Films was #38 on the Hollywood Reporter’s recent list of the 100 Greatest Film Books of All Time. His latest TCM book, the lavishly-illustrated Lena Horne: Goddess Reclaimed, is available for sale at Film Forum’s concession.
