As protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement continue to spark action across the country, some of the biggest movie studios in Hollywood have made a number of films about social justice and racism available to stream online for free.

Warner Bros. was the first to jump on board the initiative, making its 2019 civil rights legal drama, Just Mercy, available for free streaming earlier this month.

Paramount Pictures followed suit days later, releasing the Oscar-nominated Selma for free on most digital platforms, much to director Ava DuVernay’s satisfaction. “I believe these films should be available to all at no cost, especially in these important times,” she wrote in an Instagram post promoting the film’s re-release. “We’ve gotta understand where we’ve been to strategize where we’re going. History helps us create the blueprint.”

From the young adult drama, The Hate U Give, to the documentary, I Am Not Your Negro (based on an unfinished James Baldwin manuscript), here are some of the titles available to stream online for free right now.
