Abstract This essay analyzes, for the first time, Oscar Micheaux's selective use of unmistakable details from the notorious, racially charged Mary Phagan/Leo Frank 1913 murder case for narrative material in his 1936 film Murder in Harlem. Readers thus gain new insights into Micheaux's creativity and use of public history.
