Oscar Micheaux: The Czar of Black Hollywood


November 17, 2018 @ 2:00PM – At the North Sarasota Library

The Czar of Black Hollywood is a documentary film chronicling the early life and career of African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux (1884-1951).

Oscar Micheaux was a towering figure even by today’s standards. He was not only America’s preeminent black filmmaker for three decades, but also the country’s most prolific; having directed or produced 22 silent movies and 15 talking pictures during his illustrious, yet tumultuous career. The Czar of Black Hollywood uses archival film, photos, illustrations and music to weave a compelling narrative of Micheaux’s early life and his production of the first feature length silent film and sound motion picture by an African-American.
