In a statement, the streaming platform wrote: “When we say 'Black Lives Matter', we also mean 'Black storytelling matters'.

“With an understanding that our commitment to true, systemic change will take time – we're starting by highlighting powerful and complex narratives about the Black experience.

“When you log onto Netflix today, you will see a carefully curated list of titles that only begin to tell the complex and layered stories about racial injustice and Blackness in America."
