French Film History and Black actors

This was a random find but I felt the need to post it here (hopefully you will be able to open the NYT webpage:

https://www.nytimes.com/1992/08/05/movies/how-european-films-have-treated-blacks-through-the-years.html

I am not totally keen on the tone of the article, many because it ignores (or is ignorant of) the number of Black slaves in Europe pre British emancipation.

Sigh.

Zou Zou, 1934. with Josephine Baker in starring role.
