"I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to express the views of black people who otherwise don’t have access to power and the media. I have to take advantage of that while I’m still bankable."

Media with a prominent focus on Black American people, whether it be historical or contemporary. Exploration of racial identity is common in these works, though the subject can also be highly varied.

To narrow the focus, we're going to ask to only index series with African-Americans in central roles as opposed to periphery roles. A good rule of thumb is to consider is that whether or not the work is about an African-American person or African-American people as opposed to playing a part in an ensemble.

See also American Media, Asian-American Media, Latino-American Media, and Native American and First Nations Media. Also see African-American Creators for a list of black American creators.
