Summary
All-American news were the first newsreels produced for a black audience. Made in the 1940s and 1950s, they were originally intended to encourage black Americans to participate in, and support the war effort, and to reflect an African-American perspective on world and national events. Highlights of this issue include a segment about Harriet Wright chosen by soldiers to receive a set of silver, the important work done by the WAVES, and General Benjamin Davis inspecting troops in Belgium.
