A perfect document of the intersections between race, class, and gender, I Am Somebody is Madeline’s Anderson’s exemplary film. Featuring Coretta Scott King amongst Black female hospital workers in their labor struggle, Anderson’s kinship with her subjects is felt in every frame.

I Am Somebody Diarahkan oleh Madeline Anderson

Ulasan pengkritik

With ‘I Am Somebody’ (1970) Anderson knitted together her experience making public television and her political agenda, and tacitly upheld a radical aesthetic impulse that also undergirded the Black Arts Movement (BAM) at around the same time.

A film that epitomized this revolutionary collapse is Madeline Anderson’s I Am Somebody, which documents the 1969 strike of black female hospital workers in Charleston, South Carolina. Self-determination is here a totalizing process which includes racial and gender equality as well as social justice, a struggle where politics is not based on identity, but it is identity itself to be politicized.
