Summary
The earliest surviving feature directed by an African-American, Within our gates tells the story of a young African-American woman who seeks a Northern white patron for a Southern school for Black children. The scenes of lynching and attempted white-on-Black rape may be a response to D.W. Griffith's The birth of a nation.
