Editorial Reviews


This book will make a solid addition to the growing library of recent black film studies. . . . Highly recommended for all film collections. (Library Journal)

Reid makes another substantial contribution to literature on African American film history and theory with this book. . . . The volume's six freestanding essays examine early African American film, black family film, black action film, black horror film, black female-centered film, and black independent film. Essential. (Choice)

In Black Lenses, Black Voices Mark Reid has given us an always interesting summation of his evolving, highly original analysis of black film as a cinema 'committed to the survival and wholeness of an entire people.' (Thomas R. Cripps)

Mark Reid brings to our attention a complex and rich group of contemporary films, deftly setting them within their history in African American and Hollywood filmmaking. Always enlightening, never simple, Reid's work is significant for film criticism and for race and gender media analysis. (Janet Staiger)
