With so many great African American movies to choose from, it wasn’t easy coming up with ten favorites.
What’s Love Got to Do with It is a 1993 biopic which tells the life story of Tina Turner. The Five Heartbeats is a 1991 musical drama film directed by Robert Townsend, who co-wrote the script with Keenan Ivory Wayans. Malcolm X is a 1992 biographical film directed by Spike Lee about the African-American activist and Black Nationalist Malcolm X. Leon I love this list…Where are Sparkle with Irene Cara and Philip Michael Thomas and Poetic Justice with Tupac, Janet Jackson and Regina King? Do The Right Thing would be first closely followed by The Color Purple, I am shocked YOU don’t have Malcolm X first so I realize you took many factors into account! AND THANK you for listing A Soldiers Story truly one of the most underrated movies of all time!
The movie Ray, because of the flawless performance by Jamie Foxx, might be a top 15 contender. I also think Waiting To Exhale might be due some consideration particularly from a female perspective.
Oops made a mistake I meant How Stella Got Her Groove back and not WTE (brothers easily get these two mixed up)! Lady Sings The Blues, Shaft, New Jack City, and The Best Man were considered for the top 10. The first thing that I thought of when I read the list was most of the movies that most of the movies that Terrance mentioned. And by the way, I’m pretty sure that I know the answer to the question that you proposed to Shack.
Keep in mind that it’s no way in the world that he would have won an Oscar if he was not good in that particular role. Leon, very good list but you did forget Waiting to Exhale and DreamGirls, chick flicks but good movies.
But ARITS (A Raisin in The Sun) is one of, if not the most, classic Black dramas ever produced. Diana Ross is an ambitious fashion designer with dreams of fortune that will take her out of the slums of Chicago, but her boyfriend Brian (Billy Dee Williams) wants to stay and better his community. Diana Ross scored a Best Actress Oscar nomination as the brilliant but tortured songstress Billie Holliday.
A stunning film that explores race and class, Ivan Dixon plays Duff, a railroad worker who falls in love with Josie (Abbey Lincoln), a soft-spoken schoolteacher.  Duff fights to overcome a painful past and threats from racist townspeople to keep his love for Josie alive. A single mother of six (Diahann Carroll), Claudine works hard to make ends meet when she meets falls for a sanitation worker (James Earl Jones), who is more than ready to take on Claudine and her boisterous brood. This 1994 classic tugged at the heartstrings as two young lovers (Allen Payne, Jada Pinkett) find paradise in each other as their violent surroundings threaten to tear them apart.
Eddie Cook (Sidney Poitier), an American  jazz musician who now makes Paris his home, falls head over heels for the beautiful and  headstrong Connie Lampson (Diahann Carroll). Director Sanaa Hamri  de-stigmatized the  topic of  interracial dating in this smart romantic comedy. Director Tim Story assembles an A-Team of Black Hollywood (Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, Megan Good, Taraji P.
Nance plays the lead, a character who recalls the many romantic failings in his past, and also recounts what we can assume is his latest unsuccessful attempt at connecting with the opposite sex (in this case, a woman played wonderfully by Namik Minter). An Oversimplification of Her Beauty is an intensely visual film, and it feels at once personal and universal, without straining for broad appeal.
Romance is never the primary focus, though, and while the film has many light-hearted moments, it also offers telling thoughts on both race and class. The uncomfortable moment highlights the social and language gap that can open up between rich and poor, and it plays with often unspoken ideas about race and sexuality. Nina comes from an educated two-parent home, while Lyle, as King has suggested, is probably a high school graduate. When it comes to showcasing black love on the silver screen there's a long list of films that may (or may not) have left a lasting impression in our hearts.

And as Thursday marks the annual day in celebration of love and happiness, we wanted to take a look at our 10 all-time favorite black romantic films. Check out the slideshow below and let us know your favorite romantic film in the comments section. The ten that I chose as my favorites, are movies with plenty of drama, realism, and great acting.
The film stars Omar Epps, Sanaa Lathan, Debbie Morgan, Alfre Woodard, and Dennis Haysbert. It is the story of two next-door neighbors in Los Angeles, California who grew up loving basketball and, eventually, each other. The film stars Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne, who both received Oscar nominations for their incredible performances. A black officer is sent to investigate the murder of a black sergeant in Louisiana near the end of World War II.
The film, set in 1964 Chicago, Illinois, stars Glynn Turman and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, and featured a soundtrack made up primarily of 1960s Motown hits.
The film is the true story of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry as told from the point of view of its commanding officer, Robert Gould Shaw during the American Civil War.
Director Lee stars in the film, alongside Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Giancarlo Esposito, and Bill Nunn. Starring Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Morris Chestnut, Nia Long, Angela Bassett, Regina King and Laurence Fishburne, the film depicts life in poor South Central Los Angeles, California and was filmed and released in the summer of 1991. Any way here are some to consider Lady sings the blues Sounder The Great white hope Shaft In the heat of the night American Gangster Jungle Fever The Mack New Jack city & The best man. As a matter of fact, I had The Best Man at number 10, but changed my mind at the last minute. So since that is too debatable, here is one you must not have considered since it would surely knock Love & Basketball out of the TT. Don’t recall who CGJ competed against but it had to be a weak field and the Tidwell role, please! Its impact and ALL Performances in the movie are “crystal clear” in my mind so I admit my bias! I can watch either film over & over as I would most of the movies on the list but Raisin (as well as Heat ITN) are two of my favorite Sidney P.

But this beguiling low-budget film, which follows a pair of young graffiti writers in New York City during their two-day quest to tag the Mets Home Run Apple, feels honest and real.
In one of the best scenes, Malcolm encounters a wealthy white girl (Zoë Lescaze) for a second time. These heavy topics simmer under the surface, without ever weighing down this buoyant, engaging film. What’s especially intriguing about Newlyweeds is the tension between their backgrounds, and the choices that each character makes once that tension can no longer be ignored. Some were blockbuster hits, starring household names, while others have become cult classics.
These are movies that I could watch over and over again, and still enjoy them as if I were watching them for the very first time. So, without further ado, here’s my list of Top 10 favorite African American movies of all time. The film tells the story of a young African American girl named Celie and shows the problems faced by African American women during the early 1900s; including poverty, racism, and sexism. Denzel Washington was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his stunning portrayal of Malcolm X.
The film is also notable in that it marks the feature film debuts for Martin Lawrence, and Rosie Perez. It was nominated for both Best Director and Original Screenplay during the 1991 Academy Awards, making Singleton the youngest person ever nominated for Best Director and the first African–American to be nominated for the award. After reading most of them I must honestly look at the film again and re-evaluate it since I don’t remember much about it! From gaming content to customized user experiences, Ron can develop a marketing and communications channel that will become an indespensible part of your marketing strategy.
But in the last couple of months, much of what I’ve read on the subject has tended toward the latter sentiment.

Hilton did just that in her smart essay for BuzzFeed.) Several fictional films about contemporary black life were released this year, although most of them got little attention compared to the likes of Fruitvale Station, et al. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at South by Southwest in 2012, it reached theaters earlier this year. Cheatom and Harris work great together on screen, providing more nuances than one expects from most cinematic stoners.
The plot of the film (which is loosely based on the lives of several artists; The Dells, The Temptations, Four Tops, Wilson Pickett, James Brown, Frankie Lymon, Sam Cooke and others) follows the three decade career of the fictional band The Five Heartbeats.
Army regiment with white officers deep in the Jim Crow South, in a time and place where a black officer is unprecedented and bitterly resented by nearly everyone.
The character Celie is transformed as she finds her self-worth through the help of two strong female companions. And as I recall, this film ran “neck and neck” with New Jack City in terms of popularity at the time so where would it rank on your list? We also film, produce, edit and broadcast media content in high quality HD with a focus on YouTube, Facebook and social media channels. More major films about black characters have been released in 2013 than in recent years—and they are a stylistically diverse group. It’s that there is much more to life as a modern-day black individual in America than the legacy of slavery and the struggle for civil rights. Mother of George, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, and Big Words, for instance, all received critical praise. The film builds a lush, multilayered world of thieves, hustlers, and rich kids, and portrays their interactions in a manner that rings true to actual social dynamics. The movie was nominated for three Academy Awards: for Best Picture, Supporting Actor (Adolph Caesar as the murder victim), and Screenplay Adaptation. The song was covered in 1991 by Boyz II Men on the group’s first LP, named Cooleyhighharmony in honor of this film. Three of the film’s star’s, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Margaret  Avery were nominated  for Academy Awards for their brilliant performances.
The film stars Morgan Freeman, Andre Braugher, and Denzel Washington who won an Academy Award  for his role as a proud escaped slave named Trip.
