What's New & Black AF On Netflix This December

Here are a list of Black AF titles you won't want to miss out on this month.

Culture & Entertainment

Cuffin' season is officially in full effect, ladies and gentleman, and if you're anything like me, you've been benched. Luckily, the activity that means most this season can be a one man's sport, if you so choose. Netflix and Chillin' is a recreation that is meant to be enjoyed by all, young and old; so get your wine and popcorn ready and let's get this thing crackin.

Whether you're in this game alone and you need an excuse to get away from family drama this season or you're boo'd up and watching a flick with the fam, here are a list of Black AF titles you won't want to miss out on this month:

Malcolm X (Dec. 1)

Malcolm X

Malcolm X was murdered in the 60s, but his memory has been preserved by another national treasure in this biographical drama. In this 1992 Spike Lee-directed classic, Denzel Washington stars as Malcolm and offers an on-screen depiction of his life before his assassination.

Class Act (Dec. 1)

Amazon Prime

A young Kid 'n Play (Christopher Reid and Christopher Martin respectively) star in this 1992 film as a valedictorian and delinquent whose school records are switched. As a result, their lives are turned upside down.

Love & Basketball (Dec. 1)

Love & Basketball

Aw, shit now! Netflix done done it now! First, Love Jones and now Love & Basketball? My Black AF heart can't take it. You can rewatch this old school classic starring Sanaa Lathan, Omar Epps, Alfre Woodard, and Dennis Haysbert starting December 1st.

Catwoman (Dec. 1)

Catwoman

Halle Berry is the only Catwoman we acknowledge and you can catch her slay all nine of her lives on Netflix this month.

Queen of the Damned (Dec. 1)

Queen of the Damned

Shortly before Aaliyah's untimely death, she starred as a crazy, sexy, creepy vampire in Queen of the Damned. Originally debuted in 2002, Aaliyah's brother revealed that he had to step in to assist with voiceovers after her passing. While it's a sad backstory, the movie gives us a chance to kick it one last time with one of the original princesses of 90s R&B.

Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah (Dec. 3)

After learning that her father is Jewish, Tiffany Haddish wanted to explore her Hebrew roots and have a bar mitzvah in honor of her 40th birthday. The best part about it is, we're all invited. In her first solo Netflix Comedy Special, Tiffany proves that she never has to get ready. 'Cause she stay ready.

The Last OG: Season 2 (Dec. 4)

TBS

Tiffany Haddish (Shay) and Tracy Morgan (Tray) are back for another season of The Last O.G., where Tray is on a mission to put his prison-ridden life behind him and finally discover his dreams of being a chef.

Greenleaf: Season 4 (Dec. 5)

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

Canceled your cable in lieu of streaming services and missing your fam over at the Calvary Fellowship World Ministries? It's cool, sis. Me too. Lucky for us, season four of Greenleaf is making its debut on Netflix on December 5th to give you all the megachurch drama you didn't know you needed.

Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show (Dec. 6)

Produced by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris, this sketch show is Black, Black. I mean like Black AF. Earlier this year, Issa Rae, Robin Thede, and some of our favorite Black actresses of all time linked up to release A Black Lady Sketch Show, and Astronomy Club is here to prove that we are breaking into the sketch comedy scene in a major way. Featuring skits like "Magical Negro Rehab" and a horror-style scene of Black actually cracking, this show is sure to have the whole family cracking up.

A Family Reunion Christmas (Dec. 9)

Jackee Harris and Tia Mowry-Hardrict gave us the Sister, Sister reunion we didn't know we needed in this Netflix series turned Christmas special.

Private Practice: Seasons 1-6 (Dec. 22)

Private Practice

A spinoff of Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice is another Shonda Rhimes gem that's worth the binge.

Kevin Hart: Don't F**k This Up (Dec. 27)

Netflix

Kevin Hart will candidly detail the very public events and tragedies he's endured over the past year, including but not limited to his sex scandal, Oscars scandal and brutal car accident, in the Netflix documentary series, Don't F*ck This Up.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
