The Art of Black Film Vintage Movie Posters 1919-1967

Published by Pomegranate

Card; contains 30 oversized postcards

The contributions of pioneering black actors and filmmakers to movie history take center stage in this book of postcards which features 30 vintage movie posters from the early days of American cinema. A Man's Duty (1919) was produced by Noble Johnson's Lincoln Motion Picture Company - the first black-owned studio producing serious films about African Americans. The Bull-Dogger (1923) started Bill Pickett, America's first black cowboy star. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967) starred Sidney Poitier, the first African American to win an Oscar for Best Actor. The posters for these films and many others are reproduced inside - reminders of milestones in black film history. Each postcard holds a short caption about the featured film.
