  • Nothing but a Man

    1964. USA. Directed by Michael Roemer. Screenplay and cinematography by Robert M. Young. With Ivan Dixon, Abbey Lincoln, Julius Harris, Gloria Foster, Yaphet Kotto. Jewish, Berlin-born Roemer escaped the Nazis to London as a child. No strangers to prejudice—Young was also a fugitive from Nazi persecution—the filmmakers provided one of the earliest and most forthright expressions of Black reality in America, made simultaneously with rising Civil Rights movement. The film was selected for the New York Film Festival and has been preserved as part of the National Film Registry at The Library of Congress.
