In honor of Black History Month, Time Magazine, in partnership with CNN, has released a list of 25 films that they have dubbed “The 25 Most Important Films on Race“
“Only when Hollywood realized that a sizable black audience would pay to see films more reflective of their lives, whether funny, poignant or violent, were they given control of the means of production. Sometimes. The fact remains that of the 25 films here, chosen to cover the widest range of black films, fewer than half were directed by blacks.”
The “A”s own Tyler Perry made the cut with “Madea’s Family Reunion” but sadly, What’s Happening Now did not.
I’m disappointed! Who do I need to write about this?!?!
Check out all 25 after the jump…
