Daily Leap Career Video of the Week: Meet Oscar Micheaux

Each week we present our Daily Leap Career Video of the Week. The video we share presents news or advice related to career development, searching for a job, the economy and employment, and other career-related topics.

In celebration of Black History Month, The Daily Leap presents a short video on the life and times of Oscar Micheaux (1884?-1951), a pioneering, entrepreneurial filmmaker whose efforts produced 40 melodramas, social dramas, gangster movies, and musicals between 1918 and 1948.

Micheaux was the one African American filmmaker who survived the competition from Hollywood and even the Great Depression, making the successful transition from silent to talking motion pictures.
