1920’s Within Our Gates (Mini Post)

Since I am entering the 1920’s research for Side A of my family I thought it fitting to share the second silent film that I have ever seen. The 1920 Oscar Micheaux Silent Film “Within Our Gates”.

Brought to my attention thanks to Henry Louis Gates Jr and his PBS Show “The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross”.

To my surprise the movie in its entirety is on youtube as are many others that I will be viewing as soon as I get a chance.
