Black History Month: The Importance Of Black People To ‘Feel Seen’ And ‘Feel Loved’ In TV And Film

As part of the Celebration of Black History Month, Netflix have put together a collection of TV and film programs to acknowledge Black History Experience.

Filmmaker Adeyemi Michael, who curated the special selection of shows, says he wants to “speak to the Black British narrative” and recognise “the plethora of narratives which exist”.

He told Sky News: “We’re barely being allowed to tell our own stories verses people who are telling their own stories as well as others.”

He further added, that part of the challenge is to find new voices both on and off screen in order to balance the film industry.

He added that it is important to showcase a range of stories on screen and for that to happen, there need to be a range of storytellers and commissioners. Which he said it is not happening.

“The industry requires change at the top and we know that – the people who are in charge definitely need to look like me, they need to look like everyone that society represents.”
