Based on our conversations in class, assigned readings and outside resources, present your own theory about Leticia, the character Halle Berry played in Monster’s Ball. What role did the filmmaker/writer play in creating this image? What type of stereotype does she fall into? How does Leticia compare to Claudine as a single black mother and a love/sex object. There is a nearly thirty year difference between these two films (Claudine 1974 vs Monster’s Ball 2001), have the images of black women changed much? As always incorporate the readings but also find outside sources/critiques about the film and link them in your post.
