Purple Quarto, with color illus; ex-lib; viii, 136 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm. Genre and beyond; "Black Lenses, Black Voices is a provocative look at films directed and written - and sometimes produced - by African Americans, as well as black-oriented films whose directors and/or screenwriters are not black. Mark Reid shows how certain films dramatize the contemporary African American community as a politically and economically diverse group, vastly different from film representations of the 1960s. Taking us through the development of African American independent filmmaking before and after World War II, he then illustrates the unique nature of African American family, action, horror, female-centered, and independent films, such as Eve's Bayou, Jungle Fever, Shaft, Souls of Sin, Bones, Waiting to Exhale, Monster's Ball, Sankofa, and many more."--Jacket.
Early African American film, 1912-1940 -- Black family film: the 1990s -- Black action film after twenty years -- African American horror films -- Black female centered African American film -- Black independent film: African Americans in motion pictures. African Americans in the motion picture industry. Race in motion pictures.
