The African American Film Critics Association released a statement Monday morning, praising 2016 as the best year for the black community in cinema with its diversity in both casting and storylines.
“The studios and major film distributors really gave it to us this year,” stated AAFCA co-founder and president Gil Robertson. “By any measurement, it’s been an exceptional year for Blacks in film. From comedies to high-quality dramas and documentaries, 2016 will forever represent a bonanza year for Black cinema and all cinema really.”
