CLOSE HARMONY (1942, 10:35)
A film sponsored by General Motors where, in the midst of this attempt to show the positive need for good labor/management relations in America's burgeoning arms industry, resort is still had to the tired old alienating "step 'n fetch it" character Black Americans & the American public both have had to put up with for generations.

Be sure to listen to Maya Angelou singing, too!
NEGRO COLLEGES IN WARTIME (1944, 8:16)
The U. S. Office of War Information's celebrated exposition of the teaching and training of Black Americans for war, science, industry, agriculture, husbandry, meteorology, medicine, engineering and technical trades at black colleges.
PALMOUR STREET (1957, 22:17)
The Georgia Department of Public Health had the Southern Educational Film Production Service produce this film on the social and mental health of a poor black community in Gainesville through the lives of one particular extended family. Given the sponsor and producer, and the fact that it was made during the dark early days of the civil rights movement, one might expect a patronizing propaganda piece, but instead the Rev. William Holmes borders narrates a heartwarming story tinged with tragedy and extolling hope - but one still can catch the occassional soft bigotry in parts. A veritable time capsule of the black experience in the American south.
AMERICA'S DEFENSE MONITOR: BLACKS IN THE MILITARY (1988, 25:38)
An installment of the venerable and Emmy-nominated weekly military/public affairs television show "America's Defense Monitor".that investigates the state of all issues African-American regarding the U.S. military at the twilight of the Cold War.
SURVIVAL: CRISIS IN LITTLE ROCK (1964, 23 MIN.)
James Whitmore hosts and narrates this survey of the climactic struggle between Arkansas Governor Faubus on the segregationist state side and President Eisenhower and the U.S. Supreme court on the integrationist federal side over the induction of ''The Little Rock Nine'' black school children who were enrolled to attend Central High School in Little Rock but were barred both by official and mob resistance from doing so until The U.S. Army successfully ended the resistance.
POVERTY IN RURAL AMERICA (1965, 27:48)
The milestone Great Society era film depicting the real problem of the poor in America in general while demonstrating a palpable reticence to directly address the issue of race in particular.
TEDDY (1971, 16:16)
Make way for Teddy - he's young, he's black, he's beautiful, and he's growing up fast. Through his eyes we look at such issues as school, church, drugs, war, race, revolution, the Black Panthers and the Police as he tries to find himself and his relationship to his community and society at large.
THE PLANTATION SYSTEM IN SOUTHERN LIFE (1950, 10:07)
This film attempts at length to make certain the viewer realizes the bare contrast between the plantation system of the antebellum south and the economic and social realities of black and white society one hundred years later. Nowadays, we can easily accept the comparison as proper - in 1950, it was quite provocative to declare such openly. This Coronet film did that, and thankfully so.
WE WORK AGAIN (1937, 10:51)
A remarkable document of how the New Deal in general, and the WPA in particular, went to work to put African Americans back to work. From the agrarian heartland to Harlem, from the typing pool to Orson Welles' Macbeth, blacks could count on the liberal policies of FDR's democratic leadership to give to them what the republican elephant had stampeded from its memory - a chance at a better, more equitable way of life.
WHAT ABOUT PREJUDICE? (1959, 11:17)
Centron Corporation's exposition of what life is like for a minority schoolboy (whose race is never identified) in the midst of a society at odds with him, the heroic actions of whom make his white schoolmates question their prejudices and hatreds.

The incredible story of the DEOMI, the Defense Equal Opportunity Managment Institute, the 16-week race relations school at Patrick Air Force Base where black and white soldiers of both sexes, of all colors and all brances of the service meet face-to-face and confront the issues of racism and racial equality on equal terms. A surprise visit at the end of the course by a white-skinned man espousing an ideology repugnant to some and articulative of the beliefs of others which was at odds with what the students had just spent four months learning has such an amazing surprise ending that it makes for one of the great moments in our archive's video library.

Journalist Clarence E. Page guides us through the landscape of African-American conservatism, in the contemporary landscape of his day as well as from its roots in the earliest historical forms and leading figures of American Black nationalism.
