African Americans Seen Through the Eyes of the Newsreel Cameraman

An Exhibition of films from the Fox Movietone News Collection

Fox News and Fox Movietone News camera crews covered the people and events of the country and, indeed, the world.  From 1919 to 1963 these journalists aimed their viewfinders at the mundane and the spectacular.

The resulting images—most of which still exist as camera negatives at Moving Image Research Collections—provide an unparalleled opportunity to glimpse the world through their eyes.
