Hollywood is full of movies about slavery, segregation, and the Black struggle, and while these films can serve as important educational tools - especially during Black History Month - it is important to step back and remember that films about trauma are not the be-all and end-all of Black entertainment. Black people deserve happy-go-lucky romances, cultural explorations, and cheesy coming-of-age movies, too! So, if you're looking for a way to ring in Black History Month 2021, read books by Black authors, follow Black influencers, and check out this list of amazing Black films, minus the trauma.
