Facing The Challenges!

If one considers factors like the Ku Klux Klan, the Civil War and the Jim Crow system as an overall manifestation of white America’s collective outlook, it can safely be said that African Americans have acquitted themselves admirably. It may be time to take a closer look at our established co-habitants’ social roots. Ignorance, after all, is the mother of bigotry, while information always leads to maturity...

This DVD explores the social and cultural ancestry of African Americans in wide focus, and cannot fail to expand our mental horizons on this valuable segment of our national community.

In the American Cultural History - African American DVD, we are given a humane look at the social and everyday life of colored Americans over a period spanning 40 years.

There comes a point in time when living with one’s eyes and mind shut to social realties is no longer a viable option. African Americans are - and have long been - as integral a part of American society as whites are. Though we are probably still decades from a full understanding of this, we have plenty of documentary evidence. On reviewing this DVD (American Cultural History - African American DVD) I was struck by the compassionate and intelligent approach taken in its compilation. I detect the input of psychologists, sociologists and historians in the process of material selection and must state that the impact is quite dramatic.

The fact that these are films from a bygone age (1930-’71) in no way detracts from their relevance, because I know beyond doubt that the issues they raise have timeless application. The concluding film entitled Teddy is practically a contemporary examination of the African American mindset - watching it is both a disturbing and enriching experience. I recommend this admirable collection to all Americans who have, at one time or the other, suspected that we are missing a major point in our national existence by ignoring or being patronizing towards the African American part of our society.


"Yes - these are the facts. Thank you, A2ZCDS - you have made a fearless gesture and I want to thank you on behalf of all of us. Your American Cultural History - African American DVD will go a long way in telling those who don’t really know us that we are valid Americans."

Customer's Name : Yvette Wilberforce (Lorain, Ohio)

"I appreciate the message that the American Cultural History - African American DVD so effectively delivers - we need to reconsider our attitudes. I thank the Lord that my family has always had close ties with the African American community, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t always more to learn. All the documentary films on this DVD are extremely instructional."

Customer's Name : Luella B. Wright (San Antonio, Texas)
