This chapter explores the long history of visual stereotypes of African Americans from the print era through the celluloid images rooted in the minstrel tradition. It also recognizes the tremendous influence of mass media on American culture and public opinion, particularly during war. Beginning in World War I, governments on both sides of the conflict used the medium of film to recruit, train, and influence soldiers and citizens.
