On February 1, 2018, the NY Times ran 28 Days, 28 Films for Black History Month https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/02/01/movies/28-essential-films-black-history-month.html

Enjoy. As you can imagine, not all are joyful.

Intruder in the Dust
Adapted from William Faulkner’s novel and shot mostly in Faulkner’s hometown, Oxford, Miss., this is in many ways an earnest exercise in Hollywood liberalism. The ordeal of a black farmer falsely accused of murder — and in danger of being lynched — becomes a test for the consciences of the town’s decent white people (all three of them).

Dirty Gerty From Harlem U.S.A.
If Francine Everett — the charming and vivacious star of this all-black drama — had been born decades later, she might have been a name everyone remembers. Here, she plays Gertie La Rue, who arrives on a Caribbean island to sing, dance, flirt and give life to the stereotypical role of the dangerously free woman. Gertie has man troubles, a cliché that is soon eclipsed by this low-budget film’s virtues, including its behind-the-scenes show-people realism and sympathetic portrait of a woman at ease with herself and her desires.

The new way of thinking is precisely delineated by what it is not.
