Summary African Americans have made huge leaps in the film industry, both in front of the camera and behind it, and are finally being recognized for their work. This film explores the journey African Americans had to take within cinema to get to where they are now. This film touches upon topics of racially insensitive films that perpetuated racial myths, unjust representation on screen, African American films vanishing into obscurity despite their merit, and more.
