Abstract

The Help is a movie that portrays how Black maids view their employers during the application of Jim Crow’s law in the 1960s. There are some discrimination phenomena that are interesting to be analyze in this movie. That is why the writer interested to find out the tragic phenomena in the movie and compare it with the US history in the 1960s. The writer describes the kinds of social discriminations the Blacks people experience in the movie and explains how the movie The Help reflects the American Blacks history using the socio-historical approach. Sociological approach is used to analyze the society’s behavior which deals with six factors that influence discrimination of the Whites toward the Black American. The six factors are superiority, genetic discrimination, prejudice, ethnocentrism, behavioral confirmation effect, and over generalization. Meanwhile, historical approach is used to analyze the historical aspects shown in the movie. Because it is set in the 1960s, the writer uses the historical events of the Ku Klux Klan, Rosa Parks, and Jim Crow to analyze and interpret the movie. This study shows that factors of six discriminations shown in the movie is similar to what happened in the past, for example segregation in seat passenger in the bus, theater entrance, and bathroom. There is also riot in the movie that is similar to what happened in the history of Blacks in US. The riots done by the Blacks after the arrest of Rosa Parks in 1955 is similar to the riots done by the Blacks after the arrest of Yule Male. Rosa Parks was a Black woman who did not give her seat to White passenger in the buss. . The movie also shows how Ku Klux Klan’s terror haunts many Blacks when Medgar Evers is killed.
