HBO Max Announces 'More Than A Month' Black History Month Campaign

HBO Max has announced its “More Than A Month” campaign for Black History Month that will highlight the streamer’s vast library of shows and films that showcase unique voices and celebrate the Black community.

The month-long event will feature Twitter watch parties with select titles that will be free to watch on the streaming service.

What to expect:

Throughout the month, the Black Voices collection will feature a free sampling of HBO Original documentary film A Choice of Weapons: Gordon Parks, about the groundbreaking artist and photographer Gordon Parks.

Additional titles will also be available to try for free on HBOMax.com, including episode one of  Being Serena, and season one, episode one of the Insecure, among many other docuseries and shows.

The Black Voices hub on HBO Max will feature programming from Black Creators, with shows like Lovecraft Country and A Black Lady Sketch Show getting being showcased alongside some Max originals, including Southside. There will be several incredible documentaries featured throughout the month, including Frederick Douglass: In Five Speeches which is debuting February 23, and Dreamland: the Burning of Black Wall Street.

Short films are also set:

On February 3, HBO Max will debut the 2021 finalists of HBO’s Short Films Competition in partnership with the American Black Film Festival. The short films include Cracked, Mass Ave, Pure, The Snakes, and When the Sun Sets. All the shorts will be available through the Black Voices hub.

The HBO Max Twitter will be hosting weekly watch parties celebrating Black films and TV on the platform.
