Amazon Prime Video celebrates Black History Month with celebratory collection


If you’re looking to celebrate Black History Month by watching important films, Amazon Prime Video has put together a collection to get you started.

February is Black History Month, which means it’s the perfect time to watch more films, read more books, and consume more media in general created by black people and to seek out diverse media that tell complex stories about black characters.

If you’re looking to watch more movies with black actors, directors, and creators, Amazon Prime Video has got you covered this year. To celebrate Black History Month, Prime Video has collected a variety of movies and TV shows that you can watch throughout the month.

The curated selection can be found under Prime Video’s Celebrate Black Culture page and will feature a variety of well-known stars and films such as Fences and Moonlight. Along with the films and television series that are available with Prime Video, the streaming service will also offer recently released movies to rent that showcase black directors and actors. Viewers will be able to rent films such as Black Panther, The Hate U Give, BlacKkKlansman and more.

Unfortunately, we live in a society where media and art created by white people, especially by white straight men, is held up as the norm and is also the most widespread. It’s important to take the time to support filmmakers and other artists who are outside of that norm. Prime Video offers a great opportunity during Black History Month to watch a collection of films created by and about black people.

The collection features a wide range of genres, so no matter what kind of movies you like, you’ll be able to find something new that you can enjoy.

The list of titles that are included with a Prime Video membership are:

  • 4 Little Girls
