 I am developing a research project on African Americans in newsreels.
 I want to locate various holdings of newsreels that focus on African
 American life/culture. Of particular interest are newsreels that ran
 as trailers or news "shorts" in films directed at either general
 audiences or black audiences. The historical timeframe would be circa
 1939 to 1969, inclusive of U.S. military efforts during WW II through
 the Civil Rights Movement in America.
 I know the Schomburg Research Center has several holdings. I need to
 find out where other newsreel collections are housed, how extensive
 they are, how to contact curators, etc.
 Also, I need to know what research, if any, has been done exclusively
 on the African American presence in these types of films. Based on my
 limited search, so far, I don't believe any comprehensive cataloging
or analysis has been done to date.
 Thanks for everyone's help on this.
