Summary
All-American news were the first newsreels produced for a black audience. Made in the 1940s and 1950s, they were originally intended to encourage black Americans to participate in, and support the war effort, and to reflect an African-American perspective on world and national events. Highlights of this issue include a segment about Miss Sepia, an American cook interviewed in China about VE Day, commencement and graduation at Howard University.
