WELCOME

Black Folks Make Movies, a privately owned, 501(c)(3), is committed to the examination of Black film history through images portrayed in film, via education, the promotion of past & current independent filmmakers of color and the preservation of contributions by Black American filmmakers. Through this prism of Black American movie history we examine the emergence and impact of Black Americans, the creative reaction to widespread racism, via film, during the first half of the 20th century, and the vitality of Black entertainment and culture across the country, inclusive of this period and beyond.
