Within Our Gates
Within Our Gates • 1h 13m
Oscar Micheaux • United States • 1920
An unflinching portrayal of racial violence.
During her attempts to secure funding for an impoverished school serving the black community, an idealistic young teacher confronts her traumatic past, including the lynching of her parents by a white mob. Still startling for Micheaux's unflinching portrayal of racial violence and fearlessness in depicting taboo subject matter, WITHIN OUR GATES remains as powerful as it was a century ago.
