Stills from the films of director Michael Schultz

Called "a well-researched history of frustrations, defiance, and bold dreams," by Kirkus Reviews, Wil Haygood's new book Colorization: One Hundred Years of Black Films in a White World, chronicles "the long struggle for Black Americans to matter in movies."

We're so excited to collaborate with institutions around Columbus on a suite of programs prompted by Haygood's book, and to host the author and veteran filmmaker Michael Schultz on Monday, October 18 as part of a retrospective of Schultz's work. From October 14 to the 19th, we'll present five screenings, a conversation, and a directing master class with Schultz for students. All the details are here. And below, you can check out original theatrical trailers for each selected film.

This screening will be introduced by Columbus author Hanif Abdurraqib.
