African Americans Seen Through the Eyes of the Newsreel Cameraman

Fox News and Fox Movietone News camera crews covered the people and events of the country and, indeed, the world.  From 1919 to 1963 these journalists aimed their viewfinders at the mundane and the spectacular.

The resulting images—most of which still exist as camera negatives at Moving Image Research Collections—provide an unparalleled opportunity to glimpse the world through their eyes.

Fox Movietone News The War Years

“Fox Movietone News: the War Years, 1942 – 1944,” a collaboration between the University of South Carolina and the Library of Congress, provides online access for the first time to over two hundred Fox Movietone News newsreels released in American theaters from September 1942 through August 1944. Before the era of television news broadcasts, newsreels were shown in theaters across the country to inform and entertain audiences.
