To help you get ready for Black History Month, I want to give you five movies that you should definitely check out. What’s interesting about this list is that it may not be exactly what you expect. (Sorry, no slave narratives this time.) I know Black History hasn’t always been the most positive in America, and there are some ugly truths about our history that make us rather uncomfortable. So with this list, my goal is to demonstrate that a lot of what we deem as “black history” really is just American history.
