Watch The Birth of a Nation

"The Fiery Cross of the Ku Klux Klan!"

Often hailed as one of the earliest and most important motion pictures ever made, this 1915 silent film depicts the lives of two families, one in the South and one in the North, in the era immediately following the American Civil War. In recent years, the film has stirred controversy for its racist depictions of African-Americans and its presentation of the KKK as a positive force.
