Valentine’s Day. Until a few years ago, the day meant rekindling our love with that special someone by catching the rom-com du jour at the theater, followed by a trip to a fancy, dimly-lit restaurant where we would enjoy all kinds of heart-shaped delicacies. Then COVID-19 showed up. And now even a trip to the corner store requires a full hazmat suit. Talk about a sexy outfit for a date… Luckily for us, we have delivery companies and streaming services. And I’m here to tell you exactly what you should be watching on those streaming services: one of my favorite Black-led romantic comedies.

This Valentine’s Day, I will be eating some heart-shaped jalapeño dark chocolate and binge-watching hilarious, Black-led romantic comedies from the list below — if you’d care to join me. These flicks, packed with some of our favorite African-American stars spanning the past 30 years are sure to bring sunshine on a COVID V-Day!

Read on for my personal favorites, plus where they’re streaming, below.
