Against the Grain Archive

This is an archive of a multi-part series of articles from longtime collector and retired film teacher, Gabe Taverney. Gabe has an incredible knowledge of movie stars, from leading stars to near-forgotten character actors, and he has given us lots of great information over the years (he's a major contributor to the notes that appears in our auction listings and often helps us with the accuracy of who we say is pictured on stills and lobby cards). He exhibited such great knowledge when writing to us of black film pioneers that we asked him to write a more in-depth series and he gladly accepted. Below is his first introductory article, and then each week, we will run a heavily illustrated article by Gabe on a specific black film pioneer (actors, producers and directors).
