Interview: Snow White as the Ideal 1930s Woman

“Snow White is the perfect embodiment of 1930s culture,” says art historian Carmenita Higginbotham. In this original interview, Higginbotham explains how Walt Disney’s Snow White was a reflection of American women during the Great Depression.

“Walt Disney” premieres Sep. 14 & 15 at 9/8c on PBS American Experience.
