George Floyd Impact: Black Storytelling Matters on Netflix

Responding to the worldwide demonstrations protesting police brutality and racial injustice in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Netflix has launched a Black Lives Matter collection of films, TV shows and documentaries to help U.S. subscribers better understand the experience of Black Americans.

Titles in the collection include Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods (out Friday); Ava DuVernay’s 13th and When They See Us; Mudbound; Orange Is the New Black; Dear White People; and Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight, among others.

“When we say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ we also mean ‘Black storytelling matters,'” Netflix said in a statement on Twitter. “With an understanding that our commitment to true, systemic change will take time — we’re starting by highlighting powerful and complex narratives about the Black experience.”

The collection can be accessed through Netflix’s main menu and at

Netflix’s Black Lives Matter collection comes nearly two weeks after the company voiced its support for the Black community in a statement, becoming one of the first entertainment and media companies to do so.

“To be silent is to be complicit. Black lives matter,” Netflix said in a recent tweet, which has racked up more than one million likes. “We have a platform, and we have a duty to our Black members, employees, creators and talent to speak up.”
