Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A fascinating comprehensive journey...thoroughly recommended. --BLACK FILMMAKER Lupack's book is full of engrossing behind-the-scene details. --VARIETY Barbara Tepa Lupack's book is a fascinating comprehensive journey through the history of black American cinema. Having read many books on little known films and filmmakers I can fully endorse this book as one of the best I have come across and thoroughly recommend it. In fact, I would defy any self-respecting film historian, film institution or library not to stock it, as they will be failing in their duty to themselves and their patrons. --BLACK FILMMAKER, Dec./Jan. 2003 A well-crafted synthesis of the vast literature on African American cinema...This is a worthwhile volume for all film collections. --CHOICE
