How African-Americans are depicted on the big screen has changed with the a new class of talented writers, directors, and producers who tell stories pertaining to Black Culture and beyond.
The notion of “Black films” and “Black shows” has diminished, as films with all-Black casts break box office records and take home top honors during award season.
Here, we celebrate a few of our favorite producers and directors who are making sure our stories are told authentically in Hollywood.
In honor of Black History Month 2016, NewsOne will honor the accomplishments of our Black politicians, organizers, entertainers, and everyday people who have undoubtedly contributed to this great nation.
