African American Studies at Beinecke Library

Beinecke has acquired several groups of ephemera documenting African American involvement as performers in and producers of film. These posters, press books, and lobby cards date from the 1940s through the 1980s, with an especially large concentration in the 1970s, the heyday of so-called "Blaxploitation" cinema.
