Within Our Gates as response to Birth of a Nation

by Kate Fortmueller

Oscar Micheaux made Within Our Gates as a response to Birth of a Nation (1915). How do the representations of black women/black men/white women/white men compare to those in Birth of a Nation? Does Micheaux criticize black characters within the various race relations? How would you characterize Old Ned based on this sequence?
