Resource Trial: Black Studies in Video

The Library has arranged a trial of Black Studies in Video, a collection featuring award-winning documentaries, newsreels, interviews and archival footage surveying the evolution of black culture in the United States. In partnership with California Newsreel, the database provides unique access to their African American Perspectives collection, and includes films covering history, politics, art and culture, family structure, social and economic pressures, and gender relations. The trial runs through November 19, 2012.

The Alexander Street Press web site includes more information about the contents of the resource, as well as instructions for how to navigate and search.
