Storyline

Co-curated by Karl Knapper and Jenni Olson, Afro Promo is a feature-length compilation of one-of-a-kind, archival coming attractions trailers from black films of the 1940s, '50s, '60s and early '70s. This historical overview scans the social issue films, plantation dramas, and African safari movies of the 1950s and '60s, blaxploitation, music and sports biographies, and other genre examples of the '70s, as it tracks the burgeoning careers of such popular stars as Sidney Poitier, James Earl Jones, Billy Dee Williams, Bill Cosby, and Dianna Ross. Entertaining and educational, Afro Promo provides a compact glimpse at the representation of African Americans through thirty dynamic years of American cinema history.
