Black American Cinema Reconsidered presents state-of-the-art scholarship on black filmmakers and filmmaking. This collection of ten all new essays traces the changing representation of African Americans on screen, from a rereading of Birth of a Nation as a horror film to an examination of black experimental film form and community. The impressive group of film scholars gathered here, including Carroll Parrott Blue, Terri Francis, Michael B. Gillespie, Ed Guerrero, Keith Harris, Paula Massood, Charlie Musser, Mark Reid, Charlene Regester, and Robert Stam, also explore the globalization of black cinema and the on-screen treatment of major themes in African American culture such as exile and diaspora.
