General Note

  • The 1923 film "Regeneration," produced by Norman Studios in Jacksonville, follows the plight of ship wreck victims marooned on an uninhabited south-seas island. The male victims struggle over buried treasure, and over the affections of the lone female survivor, which leads to tense and violent scenes. This poster for the film plays on societal stereotypes about black men. Posters such as this contributed to white fears about the predatory menace of white women by black men.
