In response to viewers’ latest interest in titles related to racial injustice, discrimination, and systemic racism, Netflix has added a Black Lives Matter section to its genre tab.
An official statement was released via the twitter account and it reads;
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. When you log onto Netflix today, you will see a carefully curated list of titles that only begin to tell the complex and layered stories about racial injustice and Blackness in America.
The new collection features over 30 series, feature films, and documentaries which include, “American Son“, “When They See Us“, “Orange Is the New Black“, “Becoming” and many more.
