L.A. Rebellion transcripts and videos online

Materials comprise 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."
The L.A. Rebellion initiative began as part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. project, which focused on the post World War II art scene in Los Angeles from 1945-1980. Since then, "dozens of filmmakers have been identified as part of the L.A. Rebellion movement and the initiative has grown into a massive effort by all departments of the Archive to bring to light the contributions of these first generations of Black UCLA film students."
Interviews were conducted by Allyson Field, Jacqueline Stewart, Jan-Christian Horak, Tony Best, Robyn Charles, Shannon Kelley, and Zeinabu irene Davis.

Materials are listed alphabetically by the surname of the interviewee.
The recordings and transcripts exist solely in digital format (electronic documents and recordings that were transferred to the Archives on a hard disk drive). The drive acts as an archival master and is therefore restricted. Material is open to researchers and is available online in the form of transcripts and, where available, accompanied by a sample video recording from each interviewee. Full video recordings are available upon request.
