Allowing the mesmerizing collection of promotional film trailers to speak for itself, this entertaining documentary tracks the evolution of black cinema from 1946 to 1976 -- warts and all. With appearances by Sidney Poitier, James Earl Jones, Billy Dee Williams, Richard Pryor, Pam Grier and many others, the clips run the gamut from the progressive to the offensive, covering everything from blaxploitation flicks to plantation dramas.
