Netflix Canada adds new Black Lives Matter category

In honour of the recent protests against racial injustice and police brutality that have become a catalyst for seismic change, Netflix Canada have today added a brand new Black Lives Matter category, which aims to teach people about "the Black experience in America."

The specially curated selection of movies and documentaries features such groundbreaking series as When They See Us and Self Made, as well as hard-hitting films exploring racism like American Son, Detroit, 13th and Mudbound.

Announcing the news on Twitter, the people  behind the major streaming company explained: "When you log onto Netflix today, you will see a carefully curated list of titles that only begin to tell the complex and layered stories about racial injustice and Blackness in America."

The streaming giants have been vocal in their support of protests, which were galvanized by the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minnesota on May 25.

"We have a platform, and we have a duty to our Black members, employees, creators and talent to speak up," they previously said.
