Happy President’s Day!! I hope those of you who are off, you’re enjoying your day and for those of you who have to work (I know that feeling) I hope you’re getting paid extra for the holiday. I wanted to highlight a couple of documentaries that have inspired me that are currently on Netflix.
This past weekend I finally watched They’ve Gotta Have Us. It’s a short three-part documentary highlighting Black actors and filmmakers and the difficulties they’ve faced in the entertainment industry. It was motivating to see how far we’ve come, but also how much farther we have to go.
Also currently available on Netflix is She Did That! I saw this film a couple of years ago and wrote a post about it which I’ll link here:Go See “She Did That”!!! This documentary highlights black female entrepreneurs, which are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the country. Through this film, I discovered several black women-owned businesses that I now frequent.
Both of these films showcase the strides that Black people are making despite living in a system that is not meant for us to succeed. If you need a little inspiration in your life I would definitely say check them out!!
