A newly digitized version of Against the Odds: The Artists of the Harlem Renaissance. Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Joe Morton, this national PBS documentary premiered in 1993. It focuses on the often overlooked visual artists of the Harlem Renaissance, as opposed to its better known writers and musicians.

Produced and directed by Amber Edwards, the hour-long documentary was prompted by a landmark exhibition at the Newark Museum in 1990: Against the Odds: African-American Artists and the Harmon Foundation. Included are rare interviews with Harlem Renaissance artists James Lesesne Wells (1902-1993), Allan Rohan Crite (1910-2007), and Lois Mailou Jones (1905-1998). Additional interviews include curators Gary A. Reynolds and Beryl J. Wright, historians David Levering Lewis, Arnold Rampersad, Matthew Baigell, and Clement A. Price. Produced, directed, and edited by Amber Edwards.
