Monday Media: This Month, I’m Black, Black

Posted February 1, 2020 by tambarr1 in Monday Media / 0 Comments

Happy Black History Month! So much has happened in a year, but there is one thing that hasn’t changed- I love being BLACK!  So once again, I have decided to celebrate my blackness, my culture. 

You all loved when I posted my “This Month, I’m Black, Black” last year, and because of that, I am going to make this post an annual thing here on the blog. If you didn’t you didn’t get the chance to read my post from last year, I’ve linked it here for you to check out.  But it basically says that for the month of February, I plan to view movies, read books, and listen to music that has been produced, written, and/or stars black actors.  I really enjoy seeing all the magic that pours from black people.  We simply have a flavor, a swagger, a sass like no other people, and that alone is something to celebrate.  This year, I’ve added some children’s movies to the list because it is my duty to show my kids what greatness looks like, and that there are black people producing amazing arts and entertaining us like no other people.

The List: A lot of these movies can be viewed via Netflix or Amazon.  If you have already seen these movies, feel free to leave a comment to let us all know what you thought about it.
