Oscar Micheaux's response to BIRTH OF A NATION.
A response, of sorts, to D.W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation. In Oscar Micheaux’s rendition, the Klan (here renamed the Knights of the Black Cross) is not an organization devoted to racial purity, but a gang of common thieves using violence and intimidation to steal a prospector’s valuable property.
