Summary
This entertaining showcase of vintage movie trailers traces the evolution of African-American cinema through its most crucial period, 1952-1976. Filled with insights on race and social dynamics, this fascinating compendium of coming attractions explores an extensive range of stylistic approaches - Blaxploitation, Comedy, Music Bio, Plantation Drama, and more offering an outrageous joyride through motion picture history. ..Beyond mere camp, these marvelously condensed gems crystallize a range of African-American identities and personalities, tracking the meteoric careers of Sidney Poitier, James Earl Jones, Billy Dee Williams, Richard Pryor, Pam Grier, et al, through their bold performances in movies both hugely popular and practically forgotten. Entertaining and educational, Afro Promo provides a compact glimpse at the representation of African Americans through twenty-five dynamic years of American cinema history. Don't miss it! Please note: The condition of these original 35mm archival prints varies - enjoy the wear and tear..."A sometimes funny, sometimes frightening look at Tinseltown's presentation of Blacks."- Edward Marguiles, Movieline.."Hilarious, provocative." - The Boston Globe
