Black film, white money

Jesse Algeron Rhines (Author)
Rhines explores the roles African Americans have played in the motion picture business from 1915 to 1996. It links the history of early black filmmakers to the current success of African American filmmakers, and the hope for change if more African filmmakers come to the forefront of the business.
