Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror
Directed by Xavier Burgin
Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced them, Horror Noire traces the untold history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book, HORROR NOIRE will present the living and the dead, using new and archival interviews from scholars and creators; the voices who survived the genre’s past trends, to those shaping its future. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

Can this be a series? Race in horror? Because this is wonderful. I wish there was much much more
It feels a little surface level, but still interesting and informative. So many great actors and filmmakers drop by, as well as a couple that I hadn't heard of and will now be checking out.
Amazing. Exceptional. Very necessary.
You should really watch this if you haven't yet! Very well done and informative - gonna make hubby watch it with me later.
