Shaun Scott, History
The Color of Rain: African-Americans, Asian-Americans and
Whites in Seattle, Washington
The Color of Rain is to be a 45-minute documentary film that chronicles the historical interactions between African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Whites in Seattle, Washington from 1870 thru 1970. The film is an aggregate of the field explored by Professor Jim Gregorys Seattle Civil Rights and Labor History Project (http://depts.washington.edu/civilr/), and will build on the work of Professor Quintard Taylors classic text The Forging of a Black Community. The film is an extension of Professor Jim Gregorys Hist-498 Seminar. The film will rely some on soundbytes from campus authorities, and will make extensive usage of personal testimony from local activists, scholars, and historians. The Color of Rain, will be guided by music from local artists--past and present--while voice-over narration and voice-actors will be central to advancing the films actual narrative. This is to be Shaun Scotts 2nd major production. In Spring 2005, Mr. Scott completed a 2 hr. 45 minute documentary (Body and Soul: A Story of Blacks and Jews in America,) that also made extensive usage of Cartahs generosity.
