While the rest of the world is still scrambling to reflect the true meaning of diversity, inclusion and representation through their businesses, products and services, Disney+ is making great efforts to do all three when it comes to the types of movies they showcase on their streaming platform. They understood the assignment and we’ve got the receipts to prove it!
The streamer’s extended collection of movies that feature Black leads are my absolute favorites. And they’re not just featured for Black History Month, you can watch them all year long. You might want to binge-watch like I did because, yes, they’re just that good!
Here’s a quick rundown of what’s in store, then I’ll list them one by one. Some of them are filled with a star-studded casts, some faces are a little less known. Some of the stories will pull you in and assure you you’re not alone. Some will encourage you to dream real big when your confidence is small. Then there are the ones that will rack your nerves because injustices are just so wrong. Get ready to cry when the heroes come alive and you feel what they went through. Then imagine the pride they felt inside when they accomplished what no one else could do. The comedy films will have you laughing so hard, you just might hurt your back. And if your imagination needs some stimulation, you’re definitely on the right track.
So, how’s that sound? Did it make you say, “Wow!” Now, check out my list of Black-led Disney+ films.
