    This was great to watch. To see the society of African Americans in this era is amazing. Oscar Micheaux against tremendous odds directed and produced this movie. First African-American filmmaker. Way ahead of its time in 1920. 4 years 3 months ago

    D. W. Griffith ain't got nothing on this.
    Despite some of its faults, it is still an immensely groundbreaking and important film. A must watch for any cinephile or humanist.
