Summary:
"They were called race movies - films produced during the first half of the 20th century as a direct response to Hollywood's negative portrayal of Blacks in cinema. Race movies starred all-Black casts, were intended for all-Black audiences, and were often the work of pioneer Black fimmakers like Oscar Micheaux and Spencer Williams. Unfortunately, all but a fraction of the 500 race movies made were lost."--Container.
