IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

Black History Month

Each February, our country comes together to celebrate Black History Month - a time when we look back and remember the achievements and struggles of African-Americans throughout our history. To commemorate this important month, we here at IndiePix have put together a collection that looks at African-American luminaries like Malcom X and Marion Barry, films about the complex cultural realities of being African-American, a documentary about a hip-hop subculture, and a celebration of 1970s blaxploitation film. We hope you enjoy!
