Timeline PhotosIn celebration of #tbt and the 12th MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation opening Oct. 24, we'll be featuring a few of the programs of interest to dance-lovers!

"Bert Williams: One Hundred Years in Post-Production" MoMA will unveil restored footage from a never-released 1913 feature film with an all-black cast, including the great comedian, singer, actor, and dancer Bert Williams. As noted in a recent New York Times cover story, the film documents the black theatrical community and includes a two-minute exhibition dance sequence of the cakewalk, “the longest early record of black vernacular dance on film, according to MoMA.”
