America is a pool where all cultures of the world come together and Hollywood is the place which represents this diversity the best. Concentrating on just a single group of people will eventually lead the stories to become stunted. Picking diverse topics keeps that from happening. The history of African-Americans provides a wide palate for filmmakers because there’s so much to tell. It is also their responsibility to bring out these stories to the world because films are supposed to be the mirrors of society and if they become biased, how do we expect the society to become any better? With that said, here’s the list of really good African American movies on Hulu that are available to stream right now:
14. Paid in Full (2002)
The choice between what’s easy and what’s right is the most difficult of all, as said by Dumbledore! People, especially in their youth, find it difficult to resist the temptations of the wrong path. It becomes even easier to take that road when your friends are on it as well. Ace’s friends had been drug dealers and they made a lot of money. He, on the other hand, had to make do with whatever his dry-cleaning job got him. Despite them trying to make him join the business, he keeps himself away from the drugs. But one day, a chain of events lands a packet of cocaine in his possession and when he easily sells it for a good amount of money, he realises the opportunity this business brings with itself. But he must also prepare to face the eventual consequences.
13. Boomerang (1992)
Don’t take it lightly if someone says to you “what goes around, comes around”. Karma is like a Lannister; she’ll pay her debts, don’t ever doubt that. So, if you’ve been acting like an asshole and treating most people around you very badly, then it is the time to reconsider your behavior. Learn from Marcus Graham, played by Eddie Murphy. He has a super successful career and exhibits an uncanny ability to woo every woman around him. He’s a real playboy. Despite having a number of affairs, he hasn’t yet met the perfect one for himself. The reason isn’t that he couldn’t connect to these women or that they were bad to him. It’s just that his idea of perfection in a woman has a very specific criterion. The problem arises when he finally finds “the one” but she turns out to be a female version of himself.
