Anti-Racism Films

Below are a handful of films that explore systemic racism and oppression against Black people in the United States. The suggested titles may be useful in raising awareness about racism and inequality in America and cultivating empathy for the trauma felt in communities of color. Included are primarily documentary titles along with a few fictionalized accounts inspired by true events.


Please note: Some of these titles are not available streaming through the SDSU Library. Some titles are only available through personal subscription services (like Netflix and Amazon) or for a small rental fee to stream.
