(English)
WPA FILM LIBRARY is an historical collection of superb breadth and depth. The collections date back to the turn of the century and cover World War I, the Great Depression, the Civil Rights movement – and this just scratches the surface of the extensive coverage of US and world events from the past one hundred years.

Recently added…NET JOURNAL: First broadcast between 1966 and 1970, these programs feature incredible source footage of the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, the Nixon administration, New York’s Spanish Harlem, life on Native American reservations, and much more from this revolutionary time in American and world history.

A particular strength of our music collection is WNET SOUL! featuring Stevie Wonder, Patti LaBelle, and Gladys Knight plus many others. Other collections include some of the greatest music groups of the 1950s and 1960s like Sly & The Family Stone, The Supremes, Janis Joplin, Marvin Gaye, Etta James, and a plethora of other great performers. WPA’s collections also document political events, landmarks, Americana, and vintage training films.
