32 Best Black experience documentaries you absolutely have to see!!

RTD’s black documentaries examine the struggles, resistance, and persecution of African Americans. From the Ferguson Riots and police brutality to homelessness in New York City, you get a close look into the problems members of this important US minority face. You can also see how a trail-blazing choreographer in California has used the power of dance to heal the racial divide. RTD’s black documentaries go beyond US borders as well, exploring issues some sub-Saharan Africans have because of their skin colour. These include Senegalese women who bleach themselves because they think they’re too black and African albinos persecuted for being too white.
