Pioneers of African-American Cinema

Pioneers of African-American Cinema

Unlike the “black cast” films produced in Hollywood, these "race films" not only starred African Americans but were funded, written, produced, edited, distributed, and often exhibited by people of color. Previously circulated in poor-quality 16mm prints, these restored versions allow modern audiences to witness the legacies of Oscar Micheaux, Spencer Williams, and James and Eloyce Gist with fresh eyes.
