The late Roger Ebert loved movies. All kinds of movies. For over three decades he was one of the definitive voices in film criticism until on Thursday April 4, 2013 he succumbed to his battle with cancer. But what endeared Ebert to us was that he was just as committed to offering a fair and insightful commentary on our movies as anything else in the theaters. And his analysis usually went beyond how well (or not) the film was constructed, but how the characters reflected the American experience.
Here are 15 Black movies that Roger Ebert loved and why.
