This "Pioneers of African-American Cinema" is a 5-disc set (plus one booklet) showcasing 19 digitally restored films from yesteryear. This compilation of short films and documentaries covers the years of black cinema from 1915-1946 with each picture having a running time ranging from 11-93 minutes in all.

These are non-Hollywood productions that were funded, produced, and directed exclusively by blacks.

From musicals, to gangsters, to westerns, to comedy and romance - Many of these pictures were very imitative of those coming from Tinseltown, but, with a decidedly black twist to their stories.

IMO - From a strictly historical perspective - These 19 films were definitely worth a view regardless of one's racial background or their general outlook.
