Viewer Discretion is advised. Many of these films contain violence, language, and sensuality.
These suggested films are not for the faint of heart. When it comes to the oppression of a people group, it is hard to find honest films that do not at one point portray the depth of evil that are the reality of many people’s stories.
I know the emotional turmoil that can come with watching something distressing in a film and feeling helpless to the people that these evils are actually happening to, so the list linked is not one that you want to zoom through and exhaust yourself on. However, the films on this list are valuable in bringing to light the viewpoint and experiences of many Black Americans as well as the history that has brought emotional unrest and turmoil. As Americans, this history is our history as well and is crucial to be known.
