Trailer from the 1920 silent film, Within Our Gates, directed by Oscar Micheaux. The film portrays the hardships blacks faced in Jim Crow America. The subject matter was so controversial at the time, that the film was severely edited. Most prints were destroyed, and the film was considered lost for 70 years until a lone print was discovered in a Spanish archive. Within Our Gates is believed to be the earliest surviving film directed by an African-American filmmaker. The full version of the film is available online.
