Resource comprises video recordings and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted as part of UCLA Film and Television Archive's L.A. Rebellion initiative. The material documents the story, the artists, and the work of a group of African and African-American students who entered the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television in the 1960s, "in the aftermath of the Watts Uprising and against the backdrop of the continuing Civil Rights Movement and the escalating Vietnam War," as part of an "Ethno-Communications" initiative. According to the L.A. Rebellion website, the Ethno Communications initiative was "designed to be responsive to communities of color (also including Asian, Chicano and Native American communities). These mostly unheralded artists created a unique cinematic landscape, as (over the course of two decades) students arrived, mentored one another and passed the torch to the next group.".
