The educational silent film "Art in the Negro Schools" parts 1 and 2 (1940) surveys the instruction of the fine and performing arts at leading African American institutions, including Calhoun, Dillard, Fisk, Hampton, and Howard. The film argues that in addition to agriculture and industry, exposure to theater, music, dance, and the fine arts produces well-rounded students and enriches their lives. The film was part of the sponsor’s Negro Education for American Living series. The foundation provided funds for parks, established the Religious Film Association, improved educational opportunities for African Americans, and fostered awareness of African and African American art.
