Jewish Museum Milwaukee invites you to an evening of glamor and intrigue at the Premiere of Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare. The premiere features the animated original movie, Prying Eyes: A Prelude to the Hollywood Blacklist, and a keynote presentation, Blacklisted in a Keystroke, by one of the most eminent journalists on First Amendment Rights, a founder of USA TODAY, and President and COO of the Freedom Forum Institute, Gene Policinski with introduction by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editor George Stanley. Themed hors d’ oeuvres, complimentary wine, beer and “Salt of the Earth” margaritas round out the evening.

Blacklisted in a Keystroke: Fear led Americans to temporarily suspend, limit or abuse our core freedoms protected by the First Amendment – religion, speech, press, assembly and petition – from the passage of the Sedition Act of 1798, which jailed editors for criticizing the government, to the Blacklist era of the 1950s. But now we have the means to create a ‘Blacklist in a Keystroke,’ thanks to the Web, social media and that ubiquitous 21st Century badge of connectivity: the smartphone. Join Gene Policinski for an exploration of the historic challenges to civil liberties and new issues related to technology.

Gene Policinski is a veteran multimedia journalist, who writes, lectures and is interviewed regularly on First Amendment issues. Policinski, a founding editor of USA Today, oversees all programs of the Freedom Forum Institute and also is a longtime proponent of diversity in journalism as an essential characteristic of a free press. He speaks and writes regularly on news gathering and reporting, newsroom diversity and on journalism ethics.

Policinski co-writes the weekly, nationally distributed column, “Inside the First Amendment.” He is host of the online news program “Journalism/Works,” produced by the Newseum and was host of several radio programs airing since the mid-1990s, including news and sports talk programs on “USA TodaySky Radio” and “Newseum Radio,” which aired on NPR worldwide from 1998 to 2002. He is a contributor to the recent American Bar Association book, “Whistleblowers, Leaks and the First Amendment,” providing a section on First Amendment issues and a free press.

Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare is a multi-sensory exhibit that explores the intersection of politics, art, economics, and the social dynamics that impacted the American First Amendment rights of speech, religion, and assembly during Hollywood’s Red Scare. Through personal narratives of those who were blacklisted, members of House Un-American Activities Committee or HUAC, and film executives, Blacklist examines the shifting definition of what it meant and means to be a patriotic American.

Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare is originally curated by Jewish Museum Milwaukee and will be on display from October 12, 2018 to February 10, 2019.
