Oscar Micheaux a genius, of his times. The fist African -American to produce a feature film (1919) The Homesteader
5 June 2002 | by (e.g. Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is a man that broke the Hollywood barriers and made his own films. He produced 43 feature films, wrote 7 novels, one a best seller, and opened the first all black made film in white theaters in 1948. The Great Grandfather of black films1
