Series: Oscar Micheaux

Oscar Micheaux is one of the founders of the African American Cinema tradition and the first major Black feature filmmaker. Beginning as a novelist, Micheaux was introduced to filmmaking when one of his novels was purchased as a film property. He made the film and, in the process, gained a love for the then-young medium. His perspective as a Black man in America makes these films, which were created for African American audiences, invaluable documents of their social milieu. This series presents some of Micheaux’s most important works alongside new restorations of his films.
