Welcome to the Black History Month streaming video guide! This year we wanted to highlight multiple films by Black directors currently licensed by the library. Enjoy!
The New Black Film Canon is a 2023 update to the original 2016 list created by Pop Culture Happy Hour co-host Aisha Harris and Slate editor and writer Dan Kois. This list endeavors to "remedy the years of exclusion of Blackness from many "best film" lists by celebrating the 75 greatest films by Black directors."
