All-American News

All-American News were the first newsreels produced for a black audience. Made in the 1940s and 1950s, they were originally intended to encourage black Americans to participate in, and support the war effort, and to reflect an African-American perspective on world and national events. Highlights of this issue include a segment about Joseph Craigen, a judge in Michigan, the Karamu House in Cleveland, and a Memorial Day parade.
