Updated February 03, 2022
February is Black History Month, a time to recognize, celebrate, and honor the rich and diverse history, and important contributions and achievements, of African Americans. Through narrative and documentary film, gain a greater appreciation of the Black experience in America by reviewing this collection curated by Kanopy for Black History Month.

In honor of Black History Month, Kanopy has curated a collection of films that offer various perspectives on the Black experience in America. These films, both narrative and documentary, highlight the history and culture of the Black community while noting the trials and tribulations endured during periods of racial injustice. By telling the stories of leaders and those working behind the scenes to improve civil rights, as well as displaying facets of Black identity, these cinematic works provide valuable commentary of race relations across several generations. These films and others are accessible at no charge with your Roseville Public library card.

Additionally, we are excited to announce that Subjects of Desire (2021) will also be made available as a part of our Black History Month collection when it launches on February 22, 2022.
