Netflix Launches 'Black Lives Matter' Collection of Movies, TV Shows and Documentaries

Updated: Jun 15, 2020



Netflix has launched a collection of film and TV content which highlights racial injustice and the experience of Black Americans.


Movies, TV shows and documentaries in the Black Lives Matter collection include Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” (releasing Friday, June 12); Ava DuVernay’s “13th” and “When They See Us”; “Mudbound”; “Orange Is the New Black”; “Dear White People”; and Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning “Moonlight.”


Netflix began displaying a popup screen (pictured above) featuring the Black Lives Matter collection Wednesday when users first logged in to the service on the web or connected-TV devices. The streamer also added the collection to users’ notifications.


“When we say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ we also mean ‘Black storytelling matters,'” Netflix said in a tweet. ”With an understanding that our commitment to true, systemic change will take time – we’re starting by highlighting powerful and complex narratives about the Black experience.”

The collection can be accessed through Netflix’s main menu, by searching for “Black Lives Matter,” and online via the link netflix.com/blacklivesmatter. It’s also accessible through the “Genre” drop-down menu on the TV and movie homescreens.
