Our Gang

University of Minnesota Press

“The Good Old Days” catches up with the four African-American members of Our Gang and their sometimes-tortured relationship with the past. It analyzes Eddie Murphy’s Buckwheat caricature on Saturday Night Live, the slipperiness of racial parody, and the 1994 and 2014 Little Rascals remakes. Concludes with the recent wave of race riots and the fantasy of a “postracial” America.
