Block Starz Music, www.blockstarztv.com, will release an official soundtrack to "The Czar of Black Hollywood", an upcoming documentary mini-series chronicling the early life and career of African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux (1884-1951).

The soundtrack will feature the original film score by Nick “Mr. Instrumentalist” Jones, as well as vintage music recordings by various African-American artists, including ragtime legend Scott Joplin, classical composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and the Unique Quartet.

“Oscar Micheaux was a towering figure even by today's standards,” says Block Starz Music founder and chairman Bayer Mack, who shares executive producer credit with Frances Presley-Rice and Hal Croasmun on the film. “We set out to create a music soundtrack to match the man, and I believe we succeeded.”



“The Czar of Black Hollywood” uses archival film, photos, illustrations and music to weave a compelling narrative of Oscar Micheaux's early life and his production of both the first feature length silent film and sound motion picture by an African-American.

“The Czar of Black Hollywood” documentary film and soundtrack will be available from Block Starz Music at all online retailers and streaming services March 31.
