About the Films

“The Soul of Vietnam” was written and produced by Samuel W Black and directed by Chris Ivey of Hyperboy Media. This film was first featured in the exhibit, Soul Soldiers: African Americans and the Vietnam Era, in 2006. It chronicles the cultural expression of African American Vietnam War veterans before, during, and after the war as they recall their lives in the 1960s.

“No Vietnamese Ever Called Me Nigger” was filmed at the Harlem Fall Mobilization March in 1967 and gathered first-person reactions from marchers and Vietnam vets about social protest, Black life, racism, and the Vietnam war.

Total run time: 95 minutes
