Mayme A. Clayton Movies – Past and Present

Mayme A. Clayton Library and Museum has films to reach into history and shape the future this month. The “Black Talkies” series running Sat, Mar 24 from 4 pm will feature  The Devil’s Daughter, the 1939 classic film. Set in Jamaica with a rhythmic soundtrack, this all-black cast film produced by SACK Amusement has romance, comedy, and a touch of horror. Nina Mae McKinney, who you might remember as the dancing vixen in the 1929 film Hallelujah, is the star of this wonderful film.
