Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame   'race' filmmaker  Oscar Micheaux  [1884-1951]
Oscar Micheaux, the son of freed slaves, worked as a Pullman porter and homestead farmer, and wrote autobiographical novels; when Hollywood wouldn't buy his stories, he took up filmmaking in 1919 (at age 35). He was more skilled at marketing movies than at making them, yet the 40-plus films that he produced over a 30-year span shed valuable light on the harsh realities of African American life. His career began to fizzle, along with race films, in the late 1930s, and he died in obscurity. Two-thirds of Micheaux's films are lost, and those surviving are mostly truncated by censorship.

exclusive recording contract. In 1916, Biograph signed Williams to write, produce, direct, and star in two comedy
short films; he created "A Natural Born Gambler" [1916] and "Fish" [1916], and made history as
