This book is a collection of some of the early films directed, produced, starring or featuring African Americans or Persons of Color. the time period is the turn of the century. Until the early 1960's. The genre was known as Race Films or Race Movies. T his practice of film making was typical during the early days of cinema in America. Movie theaters were set up based on race and color. If you were Black, you went to a Black movie theater. If you were White the same would apply. However there were always exception to these rules. A lot of the early films were produced by White movie companies, that would in turn hire a Black director and an all Black cast. This is a brief collection of some of the posters, promo material and Lobby cards. I hope that you enjoy this collection as much as I have. Some of the images may appear a little grainy or from low resolution. If you see this, know that was the best image that I was able to locate based on availability. In some cases there are no known posters or Lobby cards. You will also notice that I have inserted stars, from the Hollywood walk of Fame. That means one of the actors or actress shown on the previous poster has received a star on the walk of fame. If this book is well received by you, the public. I will continue on my historical journey do more research and compile more rare, obsolete and hard to find Vintage Movie Posters. Thanks to everyone who helped me with this long and tedious endeavor. See you in Volume # 3
