Pioneers of Black Cinema

I should have posted this morning, but tonight and next Sunday night, TCM is running a two-part series on some of the pioneers of race movies. Oscar Micheaux gets much of the time tonight, since he's generally thought of as one of the key figures of the movement. I've seen a couple of his movies, but of the ones airing tonight the only one I've seen is Within Our Gates, airing overnight at 12:30 AM as this week's Silent Sunday Nights feature.

There's also a block of short movies tonight, as well as a Senegalese movie in the TCM Imports block. But since I haven't seen any of them, I can't really can't comment on them.
