From the 1920s, a black film industry flourished in the US, with independent film studios producing hundreds of 'race movies', aimed at black audiences and featuring all-black casts. A Separate Cinema: Fifty Years of Black Cast Posters examines these films through their posters, concentrating on the period 1915-1965. The book features over 200 colour posters and includes an introduction by Spike Lee.
