Entertainment Recommendations

Books, Albums, Podcasts, Television Shows, & Movies

With everything going on, we are still in the midst of a pandemic (enter Corona Chaos). Though people’s time is currently being occupied by fighting for Black Lives, I still compiled a list of books, albums, podcasts, television shows, and movies you could check out.

I know people are looking for black creators, writers, etc. to support, so I put them in bold. For the television shows and movies, they are works of art with black leads. This isn’t everything/everybody, and I’ll definitely do a part two.

*For the record, not everything on this list has to do with only black people. I support my race, but I also listen, watch and read things by/involving other races.

For now, I think this is a good start.
