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.

Awesome! Learned a lot about history of black cinema and hope to learn more/watch some of the movies :)
learned so much
This is the most insightful horror documentary ever made. These are the voices of real people, and they deserve to be heard.
It is very sad that the eternal racism haunts and wears them so much to the point of making them frustrating but understandably monothematic. Horror lives matter.
