Product Description

Oscar Micheaux (1884-1951) was a towering figure even by today's standards. He was not only America's preeminent black filmmaker for three decades, but also the country's most prolific; having directed or produced 22 silent movies and 15 talking pictures during his illustrious career. The Czar of Black Hollywood uses archival film, photos, illustrations and music to chronicle Micheaux's life and his production of the first feature length silent film and sound motion picture by an African-American.
