    • Abstract:
      The article looks at the efforts of African American creators to reclaim African American history by telling history-based stories and rejecting white-savior narratives. Topics discussed include several films depicting history-based stories including "When They See Us" and "Watchmen," the challenge posed by correcting U.S. miseducation in African American history, and structural changes in Hollywood that favor African American creators.
