The Business of Love

The story of one of first Black Female producers in America

Alice B. Russell

The Business of Love is a look at the marriage and subtle business relationship between Alice B. Russell and Oscar Micheaux.

As the first Black Power couple of American Black cinema, Alice and Oscar created authentic black cinema during the trials and tribulations of black marginalization in the early days of cinema.

This affected both their family lives and their work in an industry where the marginalization of a black voice in media was a norm.
