The Celebrate Black Stories collection on Disney+ will include original series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, Onyx Collective and Searchlight Pictures’ documentary Summer of Soul and ABC’s recent reimagining of The Wonder Years. In addition to launching on Disney+ this month, a series of kid-focused animated shorts called Rise Up, Sing Out will also air on Disney Junior and Disney Channel.

Hulu’s Black Stories Hub, meanwhile, will feature new episodes of history-focused series Your Attention Please, the first season of Basketball (and Other Things) and coming-of-age film Gully.

ESPN+ is relaunching its Black History Always collection with originals like docuseries Why Not Us, the 30 for 30 film series, several specials and the long-form E60 franchise.

Like Disney, Common Sense’s streaming service for kids is also launching content to honor Black History Month. Sensical’s Celebrate Black Stories package includes Kujo’s Kid Zone and a series of videos teaching kids about Black art, history and culture.
