Anti-Racist Film Viewing Recommendations

At the Coolidge, we believe in the power of film to generate understanding and empathy. Film can also be a powerful tool to illuminate the horrors of racism, past and present.

As we stand in solidarity with Black Americans and oppressed communities around the world, we offer a list of recommended viewing. This selection is not comprehensive, but we hope it may be a useful place to begin.
