Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898-1971 – A New Exhibition Completes a Historic Narrative

“I was blown away at how thoughtful this museum, still even under construction, was approaching its content and how committed it was and it still is to expanding public understanding of film history,” says Jacqueline Stewart, Director and President of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, in a recent press preview of its exhibition, Regeneration: Black Cinema, 1898-1971. Five years ago, she had been invited to participate in the Regeneration Advisory Committee of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles.
