Check out this old newsreel footage profiling Jackie Ormes, the first syndicated African-American woman cartoonist. As stated in the beginning of the footage, the newsreel was produced by “One Tenth of a Nation”, an African-American company dedicated to profiling achievements by African-Americans. I find it especially interesting that half of the people they chose to profile were women— gender parity in the 1950s was far from the norm.
