TudoTV: 15 films to watch on Black Consciousness Day on Netflix, Prime Video and HBO Max

November 20th is Black Consciousness Day. A date established by Law nº 12.519 that refers to the death of Zumbi, leader of Quilombo dos Palmares in the northeast region of Europe, in 1695. Zumbi became a symbol of the struggle for the rights of Afro- Europeians and the oppression of racism in the country.

Thinking about this, TudoTV won a special edition with films that report racism and the search for rights that should never be denied to someone due to their race or skin color.

It is worth remembering that other editions of TudoTV have already addressed human rights as the best series about LGBTQIA+ pride available on Netflix, Prime Video and HBO Max. Be sure to check out all the news of the week on the main streaming platforms here.
