This Month I’m Black, Black

Posted February 6, 2019 by tambarr1 in Busy at Home, Favorites / 2 Comments


I know that my title sounds a bit obnoxious to some of you reading this, but what I am saying and what I am feeling is the absolute truth.  The older I become, the more my yearning to celebrate my blackness grows.  I have reached a place in my life where I am ready to fully embrace the beauty of my people. Who, despite every negative experience, continue to be defy the odds and be magical.  And that is the reason why I absolutely love being black.  Moreover, I want my kids to love being black, and in order for them to understand that the power they harness is embedded in their DNA, I have show them the pride and love I possess for my blackness.

So for this month, I have decided to watch movies, read books (texts), and listen to music by all Black artists and that star Black artist.  I shared my goal on my Facebook page, and one of my friends asked that I share my list with her.  So I thought the blog would be the perfect medium to showcase my list of movies (and other media) that I plan to enjoy in the celebration of my culture.  So far, I have a generated a list of over 40 movies, and I plan to keep this list going.

The movies and/or series on this list are definitely some of my favorites.  I have placed a * beside the ones that never grow old for me.  There are other ways I plan to celebrate as well, so stay tuned.  Also, feel free to let me know if there is a movie you think I need to add to the list because I would like to celebrate throughout the year.  I grabbed this t-shirt from Target because it exemplifies greatness.  We must say their names and continue their legacy so that the magic within us never dies.
