Treasures of Black Cinema
Shaft star Richard Roundtree hosts this fascinating collection of "race films" produced specifically for black audiences in the 1930s and '40s. Selections include The Bronze Buckaroo (1939), a Western musical with black cowboys; The Devil's Daughter (1939), a voodoo horror-thriller; Gang War (1940), a mobster drama chronicling a feud between rival crime families; and Up in the Air (1940), a murder-mystery staged at a radio station.
