"American Pictures"
- a tool against racism

 

Racism in America, in Europe or universally: American Pictures is an audio-visual anti-racism program which in an effective, entertaining and moving way shows the ultimate cost of racial discrimination, segregation and ghettoization of ethnic minorities. Jacob Holdt's pictures of poverty, oppression, slavery and injustice in the black underclass are used widely for racial prejudice reduction and multicultural diversity training in universities, colleges and high schools, but are also excellent for sociology conventions and human rights seminars.

Jacob Holdt's photography of despairing poor black ghettos and mind crippling child poverty as the end result of white supremacy and institutionalized inequality and injustice - not to speak of his shocking portrayal of extremist white hate groups, Ku Klux Klan and neo Nazis and even mass murderers - seems to belong in a distant history, but is made long after the civil rights struggle. His documentary slideshow has for 25 years been the most used Black History Month events and freshman orientation programs with the longest track record ever on the American campus lecture circuit. As a former hitchhiking vagabond turned professional speaker, Danish photographer and author Jacob Holdt has become a must in race relations wherever the emphasis is on multiculturalism, diversity training and conflict resolution.
