Summary
"Early African-American filmmakers created these films outside the Hollywood system, an expression of a then-powerful niche market that was sometimes regionally distributed, sometimes driven by celebrity, and always reflective of an African-American point of view. Early African-American cinema reveals sophisticated and nuanced treatment of important social issues largely ignored by mainstream movies. The restoration of these films comes at a time when they're deeply relevant to an informed discussion of race in America. The humor, passion and craft exhibited in these works speak volumes about the dedication of cinematic pioneers to their intended audiences as well as their influence on mainstream culture."--Publisher's website
