Abstract

The Birth of a Nation (1915) is a landmark in the development of the feature film and in the history of American racial discourse in the Jim Crow period. This article proposes that the corrective for our current perspective on The Birth of a Nation is that we more thoroughly study how the techniques of feature film inscribe and underwrite dominant racial ideologies.
