The Green Pastures


Presented as a fable, “The Green Pastures” recalls miraculous events in the Bible as told to young Black children in a Sunday School class. The film acts out Biblical vignettes like Adam and Eve, Noah and the Whale, and others tinged with negative stereotypes about Black people. Remembered for its music sung by the Hall Johnson Choir, “The Green Pastures” is one of few Black-cast films made in the Golden Age of Hollywood.
