Event Overview

Our third silent film collection continues with another film from one of the great unsung forefathers of African American filmmaking -- Oscar Micheaux. In the early years of cinema, at a time when bigotry and racism in films like Birth of a Nation went unchallenged, Oscar Micheaux made films that called out this racism. The Symbol of the Unconquered is the story of a black woman who inherits land from her grandfather and then must battle the Ku Klux Klan when they learn the land is a vast oil reserve.
