The Blood of Jesus is an American race film made in 1941, written, directed, and starring Spencer Williams. Williams was one of the very few African-American directors in the 1940s, and this was his second film. The Blood of Jesus was produced by the Dallas-based production and distribution company, Sack Amusement Enterprises, as part of an all-black film series written and directed by Williams for the company. The series was meant to appeal to cinemas that served African-American audiences. The Blood of Jesus was shot in Dallas on a budget of $5,000, and Reverend R.L. Robinson's Heavenly Choir provided the gospel music score. In the film, an atheist accidentally shoots his Baptist wife. She dies and goes to a crossroads, where the devil tries to lead her astray.
