The 38 Year Old Oscar Micheaux
27 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

In this film, Micheaux portrays interracial romance by stating that a black man has as much right to fall in love with a Caucasian woman as anyone else. This was a social issue that upset his own community more than the mainstream, but it was propaganda that he was using to speak into a fragile situation.
