“The scarcity of black roles in 2011 is partly a function of fewer movies being made, and certainly fewer serious-minded movies at the studios. When Denzel Washington and Will Smith were coming up, there were routinely chances to make those types of films.Now you need to go indie or wait for lightning to strike at a studio.”

Where Are The Young Black Men Of Hollywood?
Los Angeles Times 03/05/11
The Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University was established in 1981 as the first archival repository dedicated to collecting, preserving, and making available historically and culturally significant films by and about black people. The BFC/A's primary objectives are to promote scholarship on black film and to serve as an open resource for scholars, researchers, students, and the general public; to encourage creative film activity by independent black filmmakers; and to undertake and support research on the history, impact, theory, and aesthetics of black film traditions.
