Want to Know More About African American Cinema?
Check out the Separate Cinema website/archive, founded in 1972 by John Kisch. The organization "chronicles the historic and turbulent journey of the Black film industry, Black actors and directors, and the arc of the struggle for African-American equality."
While you're there, if you see any films/performers/directors that interest you and want to learn more, The Yocum Library has a large selection of film books that includes books about African-American films, actors, producers, and directors. You can also find a large selection of African American films that includes some earlier works like the films of Oscar Micheaux, one of the most successful early black independent film producers.
