Pioneers of African-American cinema( Visual )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the most fascinating chapters of film history is that of the so-called "race films" that flourished in the 1920s -'40s. Unlike the "black cast" films produced within the Hollywood studio system, these films not only starred African Americans but were funded, written, produced, edited, distributed, and often exhibited by people of color. Entrepreneurial filmmakers built an industry apart from the Hollywood establishment, cultivating visual and narrative styles that were uniquely their own

This volume is derived from a collection of essays first presented at a conference held at Long Island U. in February 1998, to honor Paul Robeson's memory on the hundredth anniversary of his birth. Some of the essays appeared in Pennsylvania History: A Journal of Mid-Atlantic States (Winter 1999, volume 66, number 1). Additional essays were added to create this volume of 18 works, written by scholars and activists, and exploring Robeson's significance as a singer and political activist; his efforts to achieve solidarity between African Americans and Jews; the important role played by his wife, Eslanda Goode Robeson, in his struggles; his founding of the Freedom newspaper during the Korean War; the way conservative Americans turned against him in the press and tried to silence his voice; and his contemporary relevance.

Native land( Visual )

14 editions published between 1942 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by the 1938 report of the La Follette Civil Liberties Committee's investigation into the repression of labor organizing, Leo Hurwitz and Paul Strand's biting and beautiful Native Land (1942, though largely shot between '37 and '39) combines documentary footage with staged reenactments to depict the struggle of trade unions against corporations, their spies and contractors. Legendary singer, actor and activist Paul Robeson narrates the film through words and song, lending the work a sense of powerful gravitas. In part a progressive response to the patriotic newsreel series The March of Time, Hurwitz and Strand (alongside their documentary filmmaking collective, Frontier Films) divided the majority of the film into four parts, all based on real events: the murders of a union farmer in Michigan and a labor organizer in Cleveland; the shooting down of two Southern sharecroppers (one black, one white) by deputies; a brutal Ku Klux Klan rally in which members tar and feather progressive political candidates; and the Republic Steel Massacre of 1937. Interwoven with these sequences are dramatizations of the workings of labor union spies, as well as slice-of-life montages meant to illustrate the themes of liberty, freedom, and industrial modernization
