Classified X is documentary movie narrated by Melvin Van Peebles as he analyses the ever-growing importance of new black film makers and the emerging independent Black cinema. Black Film makers wanted to portray African-Americans as ordinary, successful people in comparison to the negative imagery that hollywood has been using to marginalise Black peoples existence. Melvin identifies the struggles that film makers and society had in their attempt to bring dignity to the screen for African-Americans.

In the documentary Black Friday, “What Legacy Will You Leave” Ric Mathis examines the Economic Psychology of African Americans spending habits and the importance of leaving a Legacy. These financial and psychological factors have contributed to African Americans transferring a small amount of wealth to the next generation. However, these are the same historic stories that can inspire us to break down such economic barriers and recycle the 1.1 Trillion Dollars that leaves our community annually. It is imperative that we begin to discuss such things in order to ignite change in our spending habits that will allow us to leave a lasting Legacy for our children.
