Traces the history of the black film industry from its beginnings around 1910 to its demise in 1950, chronicling the activities of pioneer black filmmakers and performers who had been virtually ignored by film historians.


Henry T. Sampson has also written Blacks in Blackface: A Source Book on Early Black Musical Shows (Scarecrow, 1980) and The Ghost Walks: A Chronological History of Blacks in Show Business, 1865-1910 (Scarecrow, 1988, selected a Choice Outstanding Academic Book).
