Maria P. Williams is the first black woman to direct & produce a film. Her film Flames of Wrath was a crime drama & was released in 1923. It was an extraordinary accomplishment. Black female directors have faced enormous obstacles since Ms Williams shot her ground-breaking film. It took over a half century for another black female director to have a nationally released film. Julie Dash was the first African American woman to have a national release with her film Daughters of the Dust, in 1991.
