Blackest movies to watch on Black Friday.
If the black experience was told through movies, what movies would you pick? How would you describe life in the hood? Good or bad? Or what is it like for a typical black family, or what about entrepreneurship? There are so many facets to one black person and their story, that we covered all aspects of life as a black person if it were told through the narration of a movie. As we celebrate Black Friday, check out 11 of the blackest movies to watch on Black Friday.
School Daze – Education
I mean, School Daze did inspire many to attend an HBCU
Get Out – How The World Sees Us
The best way to describe Get Out is “everybody wants to be black, but nobody wants to be black.” If you don’t get that, then you should watch Get Out.
CB4 – Black Music
This is for the part of hip hop that is mainstream and overplayed on the radio. It seems like you need two things to be famous in hip hop: street credit and a hype beat.
Soul Food – Black Family
There are so many dynamics to one household and Soul Food beautifully executed that. There are a lot of films that touch on the black experience but none have come close to the quality that is this movie.
I Got The Hook-up – Black Entrepreneurship
Not only is this movie about black entrepreneurship but it was created by the man who made his own blueprint to success, Master P.
He Got Game – Black and Sports
From being their family’s support system to having an incarcerated family member, He Got Game was relevant in the 90s and is still relevant today on what it’s like to be a black athlete in America.
Crooklyn – Black Family
Crooklyn is another film that speaks on the black family but from a younger generation’s eyes.
Love Jones – Our Love Story
While reality shows like to paint black people to be cheaters and jezebels, Love Jones shows the dynamic, yet-complicated power of black love.
Inkwell – Black and Bougie
Not all blacks are from the hood, some come from wealth and party with other wealthy blacks and this is their story.
Boyz in the Hood – Hood
It takes a man to raise a boy was the premise behind Boyz in the Hood and it proved to be true. Growing up in the hood is a true reality for at least one member of a black family and this film did a great job in showing the plight of the black man to just get out the hood, alive.
Black Panther – Regalness
Black Panther is about how the world perceives us to be uneducated, poor, and always needing assistance. However, we laugh because we know that we are so much more than that. And we don’t let the outside world privy to our magic.
