Summary
"Militant Visions: Black Soldiers, Internationalism and the Transformation of American Cinema offers the first book-length study of the figure of the black soldier in film. Providing a new history of the cinema's engagement with race, the book explores the unusual collaborations between the U.S. government, the Hollywood studios and the black independents that at once led to the black soldier's creation and resulted from its success. It identifies in the moving images of this patriotic, mid-century soldier the lasting influence of the militant internationalists of the earlier New Negro movement. And it also finds in the films of black soldiers the representational origins of the renegades of the Blaxploitation film cycle to come. Tracing the transformation of the figure alongside the political and cultural changes of the thirty-year period of civil rights struggles beginning with WWII, Militant Visions argues that the cinematic black soldier became central to the reconstruction of American cinema after the war; the development of new public spheres and modes of spectatorship; and the progress of the civil rights movement itself"--
