During this time of global crisis prompted by the coronavirus, the African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) has compiled a list of recommended streaming and TV titles for both children and adults to help people pass the time.
AAFCA shares its recommendations via social media and through radio and print media partners around the country. “Our titles are a combination of series, documentaries and feature films, both classic and contemporary, that cover the complete landscape of entertainment content. Our goal is to hopefully help lower people’s stress levels as we move through these turbulent times. We will share our lists of recommended titles every week for as long as the crisis persists,” said AAFCA CEO, Gil Robertson.
“AAFCA members are uniquely qualified to help people decide on what programs they should invest their time. Our Children’s List will also help parents as they look for activities that will keep the kids occupied. We feel that it’s part of our duty as film critics to offer our best advice.
The association has also launched AAFCA Virtual Roundtables to provide a platform for creatives—actors, producers, directors, thought leaders, etc.—to discuss their latest projects virtually with AAFCA members from across the country and viewable online in real time via Zoom. AAFCA Virtual Roundtables are archived at The AAFCA Channel on YouTube. Guest have included, Tichina Arnold (star of the CBS hit comedy, “The Neighborhood”); award-winning actor, Courtney B. Vance (“Uncorked”/“Genius: Aretha”), “Queen Sugar actress, Tina Lifford, producer, Deon Taylor; #balckAF director, Kenya Barris writer/director, Janet Mock, and actor, Jeffrey Wright with more to be announced.
