Making its West Coast debut at the Skirball Cultural Center with newly added artifacts, Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare shines a spotlight on the proceedings, investigations, motives, and choices of those caught in the crosshairs—including the many Jewish creatives and executives who suffered under and enforced the blacklist.
The result is an emotionally complex and compelling exhibition that demonstrates how the politics of Hollywood can shape the entire country.

Celebrate the opening weekend of Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare with a double feature focusing on the award-winning Blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo!
