Within Our Gates

This week we're looking at the oldest surviving film by a Black director, Oscar Micheaux's 1920 silent feature Within Our Gates - available to stream free on YouTube thanks to the Library of Congress! 
Join in as we discuss Micheaux's career, star Evelyn Preer, unusual credits, Scrooge McDuck, and post-World War I immigration law. 
Plus: what happened to the movie's original intertitles? How did Thomas Edison accidentally help create Hollywood? How has Larry not been caught cheating at cards sooner? And what exactly is Conrad's job? 
Make sure to rate, review, and subscribe! 
Next week: How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998)
