In response to ongoing movements for social justice reform in the United States, Netflix has added a Black Lives Matter category to highlight black artists and stories on their streaming platform.
In a tweet Netflix states, this is a curated list of black storytelling, which means that while some titles are nonfiction or focused on racial justice, others are narrative fiction or pure entertainment.
When we say “Black Lives Matter,” we also mean “Black storytelling matters.”
With an understanding that our commitment to true, systemic change will take time – we’re starting by highlighting powerful and complex narratives about the Black experience.

The category includes titles that have been circulated widely in recent weeks, including Ava Duvernay’s 13th and When They See Us, Spike Lee’s Malcolm X, Justin Simien’s Dear White People, and many more.
