It’s true, this holiday season is going to be especially difficult, due to the ongoing pandemic, but hopefully we can all come together to spread a little cheer — and what better way to do that than with #BlackLove?

Black creatives have spawned some of the most unforgettable movies of our time — and romantic comedies? We’ve slayed those too. Without much thought, you can probably think of a few classics — Jumping The Broom, Deliver Us From Eva, Hitch, to name a few. But we’ve got at least seven other titles you may have overlooked.

From Set It Up (starring big screen king Taye Diggs) to Nigerian rom-com The Wedding Party, every selection will have you laughing out loud as you reflect on your own (troubling?) love life. Check those out below and sidebar: shoutout to Black women leads killing every big screen genre known to mankind. Synopses courtesy of IDMB.
