Season 6, Episode 52 of 99

In the early part of the 20th century, with racial segregation still in place throughout much of the U.S., black filmmakers were forced to work outside the white Hollywood mainstream -- and produced around 500 films, mainly for black audiences. This year, the company Kino Lorber released a five-disc collection containing 20 hours of these films, called "The Pioneers of African-American Cinema." Executive producer Paul Miller, joins NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Karla Murthy.
