Black filmmakers Editorial Reviews


This "African American Achievers" series offers relatively brief histories of various aspects of the black experience in America. Classified as juvenile literature, each volume contains numerous b/w illustrations and the type size is relatively large, so the format aids the reader. This is directly for middle school students, but will also be useful for some older students as well. The book about black filmmakers contains all sorts of topics, from the racist films out of Hollywood, the few opportunities for talented black Americans in the industry, and the successes in recent years, especially. Personalities such as Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, Lena Horne, Spike Lee and many lesser-known names are highlighted. Purchase where there is special interest in filmmaking. Category: History and Geography. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2001, Chelsea House, 112p. illus. bibliog. index., Ages 13 to 18. Reviewer: Claire Rosser; KLIATT
