Soldiers Without Swords

4 Mar

I really enjoyed the documentary especially because it shows the side to history that most people do not know about. African Americans who worked for the press didn’t seem to hold back. I found most interesting was the cartoon section of the film. Instead of racists retaliation, African American cartoonist portrayed black characters to be hero’s or leaders. With Black Press around, the ‘white media’ didn’t have complete control over African Americans. It was unfortunate that African Americans were being treated as second class citizens but with the Black Press they had a voice and used it to fight for equality. Very interesting film which showed the evolution of what media is today.
