Co-presented by Warner Archive Collection
Directed by Gordon Parks | 1969

With Kyle Johnson, Alex Clarke, Estelle Evans, Dana Elcar, Mira Waters

The first Hollywood studio film directed by an African-American, this adaptation of Parks’ autobiographical novel chronicles a teenager’s experience of racism in 1920s rural Kansas. Upon the film’s release The New York Times raved, “The restraint, the composure, the sufficiency of the sentimental gesture constitute a small gift for memory and a real victory in the first stages of this filmmaker's career.”
