One of the streaming giant's newest additions is a “Black Lives Matter” collection that will highlight movies, shows and documentaries about the experience of black Americans.

The collection, which comes after weeks of protests around the country ignited by the death of George Floyd, will feature titles including “13th,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Moonlight” and Spike Lee’s new film “Da 5 Bloods.”

The collection was first unveiled to users last week as a popup screen that displays upon login.

It can also be accessed through the platform’s main menu, by searching “Black Lives Matter,” or at this page on the Netflix site. It can also be found on the “Genre” drop-down list under both the TV and movie homescreens.
