We’re almost six months into 2022, and while there’s no shortage of crazy happenings this year, we still have much to celebrate. Even when reality isn’t up to par, we still have an abundance of Black-led films to look forward to. When Black storytellers, whether actors or filmmakers, come together to tell our stories, there’s no greater feeling.

The wonderful thing about these films is that in addition to telling our stories, they also provide an escape from reality that we all need at times. From fiction to real life, Black storytellers have always done their due diligence in ensuring our stories are told accurately and 2022 is no different. Check out our list of seven Black-led films coming out this year.
