In the spirit of the NBA delivering us the sad news today, we figured we could help lighten the mood by bringing you some of the finer moments in sports film.
Sports hold a special place in the hearts of Americans and possibly more so in the black community. Sports gives us a chance to spend time with one another, eat, drink, and be merry amongst our family and friends. When translated to film, sports allows us to see many of societies ills from a perspective that we might not have understood otherwise.
Some of the movies we have chosen are funny, heart-warmning, heart-breaking, dramatic, or just downright sad. In any case, watching stories about life through tragedy, competitiveness, and triumph within a game has brought us great pieces of cinema that should be recognized.
So, without further ado BOSSIP brings you the best black sports films of all time.
Flip the script to peep the list.
