Post-Soul Black Cinema traces the movement of African American filmmakers and images, as they move from the margins to the mainstream of American cinema. The author writes a cogent history of African American participation in the American film industry. The ability of the book to break down the myths and highlight the important transformational moments that saw African Americans move from the margins to the mainstream to positions of power cannot be ignored. This book looks at contemporary Black cinema and the current trials and tribulations in the movie business. An important addition to the existing body of work that explores Black film as a genre.
