For the first half of the twentieth century, the best coverage of blacks in entertainment--especially the developing motion picture industry--was in the newspapers published and circulated by the African American community. This annotated bibliography adds to the first volume with easy access to entertainment coverage in two more of the most influential black newspapers during that time: the Pittsburgh Courier and the California Eagle. These papers were selected for their wide circulation, proximity to the two major American geographical centers for film production, and their high quality coverage of entertainment. The chronological arrangement allows the reader to trace developments in entertainment from the early days of motion pictures to mid-century. Quotations from the articles offer a taste of each newspaper's style, and extensive indexing provides quick access to names, titles, and subjects, making the book an invaluable aid to researchers.

About the Author:

Charlene B. Regester is a professor in the department of African & Afro-American Studies, at the University of North Carolina. She is on the editorial of the Journal of Film and Video and Screening Noir.

From Booklist:

In 2002 McFarland published Black Entertainers in African American Newspaper Articles, Volume 1: An Annotated Bibliography of the Chicago Defender, the Afro-American (Baltimore), the Los Angeles Sentinel and the New York Amsterdam News, 1910–1950, in which author Regester compiled a list of some 12,169 newspaper articles about entertainers, mainly those in the motion-picture industry. This volume surpasses its predecessor in both size and scope. The number of entries is nearly doubled (20,716), and the subjects of those entries include many “not directly related to the cinema.” The criteria used to select the Pittsburgh Courier and the California Eagle for this compilation are the same ones used in selecting source titles for volume 1, including the availability of each title on microfilm, wide circulation, high quality (based on Eugene Gordon’s 1920 survey of 50 black newspapers), and broad coverage of the entertainment industry. The format used in volume 1 is also the same: entries are arranged chronologically and include the article’s date and title (or its first few words), the newspaper title, and, if known, the author’s name and the first page number. In addition to the thousands of entries, there are essays chronicling the histories of the source titles, a brief bibliography, and a comprehensive index. This valuable guide to primary source materials belongs in all African American history as well as performing-arts reference collections. --Carolyn Mulac
