Lynchings Continued for Decades
Like other commentators, Im also pleased to find these film clips. I especially value the normalcy of the scenes. It made it more jarring, then, when I remembered that White people were still lynching Black Americans even as these and other family scenes unfolded daily, and would for another quarter-century
Good film featuring a well-to-do black family doing home movie things! Lots of family shots in the beginning, followed by a trip! This was very cool. It was interesting to see what the black people were wearing, because it just totally matches the fashions of the time worn in black cinema.

Great Rare Footage of Black Americans in 30s-40s
Great footage of Black Americans from the 1930s. It can be so difficult to find this footage of everyday life.
If I'm not mistaken, the older woman at the beginning of the vid is civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune.
