Images of a Black President

Birth of a Nation (D.W. Griffith, 1915)

(Well, black congress anyway, starting about 5 minutes in)

Rufus Jones for President (1933, starring a very young Sammy Davis Jr.)

(Part 1 of 3)
Thr Richard Pryor Show (1977)

Eddie Murphy: Delirious (1983)

Chris Rock (audio from Bring the Pain, 1997)

Black Bush (Chappelle's Show, 2004)

I wanted to write something about what this evolution means, but my brain is mush right now. Did I forget any good ones?
