Hidden Figures

February is noted as Black History Month - we're bringing you a special playlist to honor this with series and movies across DStv and Showmax.

Black History Month started in the 70s in the United States of America recognising the important events and achievements within the black American community that paved a way for many.

Our special playlist commemorates the 92nd year of Black History Month that was started by Carter G. Woodson - the theme for this year is African American's in Times of War.

Sips and Mish take a look at the series and movies which have made an impact in the entertainment industry with casts led by incredible black talent like the iconic Black Panther coming to cinema's on Friday 16 February. From Denzel Washington's record Academy Award nominations for a black actor to great new series coming our way, there's a lot to be proud of. #BlackExcellance
