N-word Project Pt 2: Origin of “Nigger” by Norman Kelley

23



This rough-cut of demo video of a future feature length documentary, “The N-word Project: America’s Verboten Word,” looks the origin of the word “nigger,” and how blackface minstrelsy manufactured the concept of “the nigger.”

This section also examines how slavery, via forced indoctrination, such as whippings, compelled blacks to accept the status of being a “nigger.”
