This Black History Month has been a very significant one – from Beyoncé urging us to get in formation to Kendrick Lamar’s GRAMMY wins – it has been a month of an oft-described “fragmented” community rallying together on the main stage.
There have been waves of awareness and cultural appreciation which leads me to believe that there is hope that the community will rise up in an effort to be the change we want to see. While the month to celebrate is over, Black history is American history – and if you only know what has been taught in your history books than you know barely the bare essentials.
To keep the conversation going, I curated a list of must see documentaries (not in any specific order) that will leave lasting impressions because our history is significant every single day. There is content that will be insightful and wondrous. Some titles are available online and via Netflix – cue your Spring rainy day playlist with these films.
