Best Black History Docs To Watch For Juneteenth

Arts & Entertainment – Black America Web

Happy Juneteenth, everyone!

On this special day that we commemorate the end of slavery here in America — well, Lincoln actually abolished it officially two and a half years earlier, but that’s another story! — there’s no better way to celebrate than by educating yourself. No, you don’t have to sign up for a crash course in Black History at your local community college or read books on the matter until you can recite every civil rights pioneer to ever exist. Instead, why not just sit back and soak it all in by watching a good documentary?

For some of you, this Juneteenth will look a little different given that a good chunk of the world is spending a lot more time at home. If that’s your plan — keeping things “quarantine clean” until we’re  all  100% in the clear from COVID-19 is very understandable — we put together a Black-centric watch party list filled with 10 documentaries that tell our history through the lens of everything from food and haircare all the way to the unfortunate burning of Black Wall Street that occurred 100 years ago this month.

Take a look at these 10 Black History documentaries you can watch for Juneteenth that each tell our stories as a race from many different perspectives, whether it be the inspirational story of a Queens-bred project kid that went on to be a rap king or a Black trans queen that became a martyr for LGBTQ visibility in Black culture.

Enjoy!
