Rhonda:

You might want to take a look at the video core list recently assembled
by members of this list. In looking it over, it occurs to me that it
contains most or the essential general works on the topics you outline
below.

The list lives at: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/corefinal.html

For a set of larger lists which feature more specialized titles in
addition to those on the list mentioned above you may want to take a look
at the following Berkeley videographies:

Africa http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/AfricanVid.html

African Cinema http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/Africanfilm.html

African American Studies
http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/AfricanAmVid.html

Harlem Renaissance videography
http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/harlemrenaissance.html

African American Images in Cinema
http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/imagesafam.html

Latin America/Caribbean http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/LatinAmVid.html

Latin American/Caribbean Cinema
http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/LatinAmfilm.html

Unfortunately, distributors are not listed on these videographies. If
you need to know a source for any of the titles on these lists, let me
know.

I also recommend the following excellent resources for identifying
materials:

Ranucci, Karen and Julie Feldman, eds. 1997.<italic> A Guide to Latin
American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latino Made Film and Video.</italic>
Lanham, Md.: Scarecrow Press.

Aufderheide, Patricia. 1992. <italic>Cross-Cultural Film Guide: Films
