1898 Silent Film Represents Earliest Depiction of On-Screen Black Love

Yes, 1898. I was startled at the date.

And this is fascinating.

What may seem common by today’s movie standards was quite sensational when this film was made in 1898.

1. Thanks! The entire film is only 30 seconds long and you can see it at the link

Film was just beginning back then. You should post this in the Lounge. I think people will be interested
