Need to watch Black Films!

Updated: Feb 18

In honor of Black History Month, the Milne Public Library's Film Collection curator

compiled a list of "must watch" black films. This list was created with input from her friends, People of Color, so it comes from the best source! Most of the films are available through our library and inter-library loan. I have included a few titles that are only available through

Amazon Prime or Netflix because they were just too good to omit.

There is a lot of "Black Joy." Please balance your viewing.

Let's celebrate "Black Joy" as well as recognizing "Black Trauma."

And feel free to explore this list of fantastic films: The Best Black Movies of the Last 30 Years.


First! Check out the titles below on Wowbrary by clicking here. It's a great way to read a synopsis and see the cover of the browsing shelves!

The links below will take you to the CW/MARS catalog where you can request

any of these films for library takeout:
