‘Black power’ in Hollywood

The Oscar Awards have changed in tandem with passage of time. The movie “12 Years a Slave,” which describes the slavery system from the perspective of black people, received three categories of this year’s Oscar Awards. "The Color Purple" (released in 1985) directed by Steven Spielberg was nominated in 12 categories but received no honor, sparking controversy at the time.
