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.
