Northwest African American Museum says
One hundred years ago, D.W. Griffith’s Civil War epic, Birth of a Nation, debuted in a cinematic christening of the White House and began its notoriously heralded life in the canon of American cinema. A few years later as a response, Oscar Micheaux, the first African American director to receive major recognition, presented Within Our Gates, an explicit critique of racial violence systematically perpetrated against blacks.

Join us for an evening of dialogue and imagery with Charles Mudede (The Stranger) and Zola Mumford (Langston Hughes African American Film Festival), as they discuss Birth of a Nation’s social, political and cinematic impact, and Oscar Micheaux’s moving response film, Within Our Gates. This program was created in partnership with Langston Hughes African American Film Festival and the Northwest Film Forum.
