Just finished watching Cuban Roots/Bronx Stories. It tells the historical journey of a Black Cuban-American family, from Jamaica, to Cuba, to the Bronx. I really enjoyed this documentary.
I watched this on Kanopy. If you don't already know, Kanopy is a streaming site you can access through some public libraries and universities. The movie is also available for rent on Vimeo for 4.99. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/cubanrootsbronxstories
Tonight I watched Maestra on Kanopy. It's an insightful doc on the experiences of women who were teachers in Cuba's literacy campaign as young girls. Also available on Vimeo. I first learned about the campaign when I read Education & Capitalism (one of my favorite books).
I'm watching ¿Dónde está Sara Gómez?, a documentary about Sara Gomez. It's in Spanish with English subtitles. You can watch it here:

I watched Cuba: An African Odyssey & learned a lot about Cuba's solidarity w/ African resistance movements. Most of the doc was on DRC & Angola. There was also info on Gabon, Namibia & South Africa.
The doc would've been better if feds were excluded.
I watched Jamaica and Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico - so beautiful! Ebony Bailey is such a great filmmaker! I was introduced to her work through Life Between Borders: Black Migrants in Mexico. Can't wait to connect w/ Black people in MX. https://vimeo.com/ebonymarieb 
I'm really excited to watch Negra, a documentary that explores what it means to a Black woman in Mexico.

This is a great documentary on Black Colombians and their relationship with plants.
