Afro Promo
This humorous and insightful documentary is composed exclusively of movie trailers promoting films which depict the lives of African-Americans. From the patronizing promotion for 1946 Disney film, The Song of the South to the hip, tongue-in-cheek promo for Putney Swope, the range of attitudes from the '40s through the '90s is clearly and entertainingly shown. Surprisingly, in the comparison, the promotions for the much-despised "blaxploitation" films of the seventies come off well. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
