  • Description

    Explore the landmarks of early African-American film with this extensive collection of features and shorts.

    One of the most fascinating chapters of film history, the so-called race films of 1920s, 30s and 40s America rallied against the prejudiced conventions of the time. Starring, written, produced and directed by African-Americans, these pioneering films refined an innovative style that set them apart from the Hollywood establishment.

    Showcasing the works of influential filmmakers such as Oscar Micheaux, Spencer Williams, Zora Neale Hurston, and James and Eloyce Gist, the Pioneers of African-American Cinema is a newly restored collection of rare and nearly-forgotten films that celebrates the enduring influence of these overlooked visionaries.
