Storyline

A documentary look at the confluence of the Red scare, McCarthyism, and blacklists with the post-war activism by African Americans seeking more and better roles on radio, television, and stage. It begins in Harlem, measures the impact of Paul Robeson and the campaign to bring him down, looks at the role of HUAC, J. Edgar Hoover and of journalists such as Ed Sullivan, and ends with a tribute to Canada Lee. Throughout are interviews with men and women who were there, including Dick Campbell of the Rose McLendon Players and Fredrick O'Neal of the American Negro Theatre. In the 1940s and 1950s, anti-Communism was one more tool to maintain Jim Crow and to keep down African-Americans. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Educational story that needed to be told!
6 September 2000 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Excellent account about the impact McCarthyism had on several of the Black Americans in Hollywood at the time. Archived video and photographs provide you with an in depth feel for what these individuals were subjected to during this tumultuous time in American history.
