Netflix & Prime Shows to Watch, to Educate Yourself on Black Oppression
Earlier this week, Instgrammer unity.celeste posted a list of "5 series on Netflix to educate yourself on black oppression," offering up Explained: The Racial Wealth Gap, three docuseries (Time: The Kalief Browder Story, When They See Us, and 13th), and documentary Who Killed Malcolm X? As part of her post, she wrote, "For those who want to educate and learn more but don’t know where to start, add a couple of these badboys to your Netflix list."
The instagram post got over 700,000 likes in four days likes and she wrote, "Those of y’all that have more suggestions, feel free to drop these in the comments." There were a lot of suggestions and today she posted a new Instagram with a much bigger list titled "The BLM movement: Films and series to watch." With help from fellow Instagrammers @DestinyFlair_ and @BeCreative.BC, this much bigger list is now includes not just even more things on Netflix but titles available via Amazon Prime, YouTube and Google Play, noting "not all of the programs are hard hitting. There’s a few that are slightly more chill/ child friendly/ indirectly related."
The new list include films 12 Years a Slave, Fruitvale Station, Training Day, BlindSpotting, I Am Not Your Negro, Django Unchained, If Beal Could Talk, Coach Carter and more, and series like Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have it, Trigger Warning with Killer Mike, Dear White People, Seven Seconds, Orange is the New Black (seasons 4 & 5), Mindhunter S2, The Innocence Files, and more.
Check out the whole list, and trailers for the original five selections, below.
