Can you believe it’s gonna be June in a few days? Like how sway! HOW! But it is, and since I promised myself last year when I quit my job that I’d focus on Black films more. I’m keeping that promise! Starting with (but not really) this post. Lol

I mean, I’ve been writing about Black films ever since I started writing! It’s just in me! My review of The Photograph even went viral in February!

So yeah, I write about Black movies!

But I do wanna make it a BIG deal to support even the smaller Black films that may not get as much recognition as the films with bigger budgets, and more famous actors. I’ve been rooting for everybody Black way before that phrase became a thing, so it’s time I show that! Consistently!

So every month, I’ll highlight as many Black films as possible on all of the streaming platforms that I use (and have, but probably don’t use as often).

  1. I have heard The Help is a “white savior” movie. Do you agree? I liked so many things about it, but I can definitely understand that point of view. I felt the same way about Hidden Figures, some great messages but history twisted for the Kevin Costner character.

    • Sorry for the late response on this, but there are LOTS of white savior movies and tv shows and yes this is one of them. I personally cringe anytime I walk in a white neighborhood and see Black nannies. But I understand I have no control over what people do.
