Oscar Micheaux

Mr. Micheaux was the prolific writer, director and producer of more than 44 films between 1919 and 1948. His films dealt with the African American struggle for equality in a hostile world.  His second film, Within Our Gates, is often considered his response to D.W. Griffith’s racist classic, Birth of a Nation. Micheaux’s  film depicts lynchings and the rape of black women by white men…in 1920. Mr. Micheaux was definitely not afraid to stir up controversy and was a ground-breaking artist who paved the way for black directors to come.
