Covering the Civil Rights Movement was a catalyst for a paradigm change in documentary filmmaking and broadcast news, but even in the most progressive corners African American filmmakers and journalists were still excluded from telling their own stories on film. William Greaves’ Emmy-winning news program Black Journal provided the first platform to challenge that inexcusable omission. Working with a predominantly African American crew, Black Journal was an incubator for many of the independent filmmakers that would emerge in the next decade. This program includes pieces by Madeline Anderson, St. Clair Bourne, and many others.

The program includes:

Culture in the South
Produced and directed by Robert Wagoner

Black Dance
Produced and directed by St. Clair Bourne

Modern & African Dance
Produced and directed by Kent Garrett

Black Beauties & Hairstyles
Produced and directed by Horace Jenkins

A Tribute to Malcolm X
Produced and directed by Madeline Anderson
