36 FILMS TO HEIGHTEN YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF BLACK HISTORY
As an African-American and South Asian-American family we chiefly believe that if you don’t understand your past how can you build upon your future? The substance of African-American history is often marred or unfound in American history books. In essence, you have to seek out much of the historical content and context in which African-Americans helped to shape America.
Nevertheless, this is our collective history; American history that as parents we look forward to sharing with our multicultural child. So that she will not have to ask the question of who am I, and she will not be ashamed, or consumed by her mixed cultural heritage but fortified by it.
Hence in celebration of black history month we wanted to share 36 movies that have led us to: shout at the TV/ movie screen, drown our pillows and sofa with tears, and look on in admiration.
