Rotten Tomatoes Celebrates Black History Month


( ENSPIRE Entertainment ) Honoring the Best in Cinema With Comprehensive Viewing Guides of Films That Celebrate Black Joy, Up-and-Coming Black Directors and More!

ENSPIRE Contributor: Anastasia Hanna

This Black History Month, Rotten Tomatoes is honoring the poignant and culture-altering work of Black filmmakers and performers as well as the stories they have brought to their theaters and homes over the last several years, with brand new lists outlining the 40 Films That Celebrate Black Joy, 15 Up and Coming Black Directors and 20 Under-the-Radar Black Movies to Watch Now. The iconic DJ Spooky has even conducted a significant analysis of Black cinema with his History of Race Films.

In addition, the Rotten Tomatoes team has updated their lists ranking the Best Black Movies of the 21st Century and Important Films About the Black Experience, as the last year has created some incredible additions to both lists.

Throughout the month of February, content celebrating Black History Month will be added to Rotten Tomatoes, including a Black TV Binge Guide and a special Rotten Tomatoes is Wrong podcast episode about the critically Rotten but beloved by audiences film, Blade.
