|Description:||This collection of streaming video brings together documentaries, interviews, and previously unavailable archival footage surveying the black experience. At completion, the collection will contain 500 hours of film covering African American history, politics, art and culture, family structure, gender relationships, and social and economic issues.
In partnership with California Newsreel, the oldest nonprofit social issue documentary film center in the United States, the collection presents films examining racial justice and diversity. Additionally, Black Studies in Video will feature the SNCC Legacy Video Collection, a series of over fifty hours of formal addresses, panel discussions, and programs that took place at the fiftieth anniversary conference and reunion commemorating the founding of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.
The collection includes documentaries on leading artists, writers, musicians, playwrights, and performers, such as Toni Morrison, Langston Hughes, Huey P. Newton, Frantz Fanon, Zora Neale Hurston, Richard Wright, Eldridge Cleaver, August Wilson, Bobby Seale, Ethel Waters, Amiri Baraka, and Robert F. Williams.
