With the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement in US, the streaming giant Netflix has curated a special collection of shows and films that talk about racial injustice faced by African-Americans. According to reports, the collection is currently available only for American subscribers.
With 48 titles in the collection, some recent films and shows in the list are, Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, Ava DuVernay’s 13th and When They See Us, the hit series Orange Is The New Black, and oscar-winning Moonlight, LA 92, American Son, When They See Us, Becoming, Self Made, Pose, Malcolm X, Beyoncé’s Homecoming and more.
While promoting the new collection, Netflix tweeted, “When we say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ we also mean ‘Black storytelling matters. With an understanding that our commitment to true, systemic change will take time – we’re starting by highlighting powerful and complex narratives about the Black experience.”0
