Celebrating Black History Month

Documentaries Featuring Black History & Modern Day Black Heroes

Most of the link buttons below lead to online TV programmes or documentaries that have been shown on British Mainstream TV channels over the last few months. However, most are also now available online on YouTube, etc. 

Due to the influence of the global 'Black Lives Movement' many large media corporations are making an effort (to be more balanced and diverse). We hope this short selection will benefit and/or enlighten you. This is a small sample of hundreds of (primarily) high quality professional documentaries easily found and available online for streaming as well as on mainstream TV for your education and enjoyment.
