New documentaries touching on race, class, democracy, civil rights, and more from the Obamas and Netflix.
We’re excited to see this new slate of documentaries and films the new production company, Higher Ground Productions, started by Barack and Michelle Obama, are planning for Netflix. The films range from a drama series set in post-World Wall II New York to a film adaptation of the biography “Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom”.
“We believe each of these productions won’t just entertain, but will educate, connect and inspire us all,” Mr. Obama said in a statement.
We can’t wait to see them. To learn more and to see the full list of planned projects, read the full story at www.nytimes.com.
