Within Our Gates – Free for Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month, we're proud to share a piece of our Pioneers of African-American Cinema collection with you by offering Oscar Micheaux’s most celebrated film, Within Our Gates, for free during the entire month of February. Filmed over 100 years ago, Micheaux’s film is the earliest surviving feature film made by an African-American director and was named to the National Film Registry in 1992. Our restoration is presented in cooperation with the Library of Congress and features a musical score by Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky. Also included is a short documentary with film historian Charles Musser, author of Oscar Micheaux and His Circle, discussing the significance of Micheaux's life and work.
