At the time of it's release, "Birth of a Nation" (1915) was very popular. It's estimated budget was $110,000. It grossed $3,000,000 at the box office. It was the first film to be shown in the White House. Most white people in the South at that time probably thought it was a great film.

The NAACP tried to have it banned, but failed.

This film is credited with inspiring African-Americans to begin making their own films so as to show positive images of their people.
