28 Films for Black History Month
has an excellent list. The most obviously relevant to our course are Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970) and Devil in a Blue Dress (1995), a remake of Walter Mosley's first Easy Rawlins novel (I'll be showing clips in lecture). But they're all relevant to Noir Cause 4 that we'll be discussing - Legacies of Slavery. I once watched House Party and Daughters of the Dust back to back--there's a wide range of great stuff here.
