Hollywood Blacklist

The Hollywood Blacklist, in which artists, directors, screenwriters, and actors were accused of ties to communism, barred from working, and even investigated by congress, took place 50 years ago. Our own Tony Kahn, whose family was forced to flee to Mexico during the Red Scare, documented this in his podcast series, Blacklisted.

This weekend, join Tony, and others affected by the Blacklist, in marking the 70th anniversary of the House Un-American Activities Committee. You can watch this Saturday, Nov 18 12:00pm EST on C-SPAN3.
