Kanopy's Special Black History Month Collection Highlights African American Struggles and Achievements
Kanopy's special Black History Month collection of independent movies and documentaries runs the gamut of African American interests, including topics on history, music, the arts, racism, media representation, identity in the African American community, and many more. The 368-video collection is easily searchable by subject, filmmaker, year, and popularity. See the entire list here.
Kanopy is a video streaming platform for libraries with one of the largest collections in the world—over 30,000 films. The films are more typically educational in nature, what Kanopy likes to call "thoughtful entertainment," providing patron access to films of social and cultural importance.
Kanopy is available to Birmingham residents with a JCLC library card.
