February marks Black History Month in the U.S., and around the country people are pausing to reflect and celebrate Black History this month. As part of our observation, we asked some of our employees to share their favorites found in The Roku Channel that celebrate the creativity and talent found within Black Voices.
Here are our top 5 employee picks:
Being Mary Jane (BET+ on The Roku Channel) – A successful anchorwoman must juggle work, family and relationships.
Creed II (EPIX on The Roku Channel) – Under guidance from Rocky Balboa, boxing phenom Adonis Johnson prepares for an epic showdown against the son of Ivan Drago — the former Russian fighter who killed Apollo Creed in the ring.

Concussion (Free on The Roku Channel) – Forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) raises public awareness about chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a disorder that causes brain trauma in football players.
