The Black Press: Soldiers Without Swords

“In this award-winning PBS documentary, archival footage and photographs are skillfully juxtaposed with interviews with editors, photographers and reporters from African-American newspapers, who toiled on the front lines to give voice to a culture disenfranchised by white media.

Stanley Nelson’s film sheds light on the courageous progenitors of the black press in America and examines the historic contributions and long-lasting legacy these papers have had on our society.”

Aired 1999 on PBS.
