Can anyone on the list recommend a reputable source of black film
reviews?=20

I know about BlackFlix.com.

Are there journals or other internet sources that would provide reviews
from the black point of view?

Thanks.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
