This is a user-contributed, ever-expanding list of theatrical and made-for-TV movies that feature romantic relationships between black women and white men.
Some of the relationships depicted aren’t entirely , of course.
Many are based more on sex than love, so we’ve been careful to point out those cases in the notes section below.
In addition, we’ve tried to make a note of any themes that some may find offensive, such as racial violence, misogyny, and so forth, even if a given film may have great artistic or socio-political value.
Prior to the 1960s, it was very common for light-skinned black characters to be portrayed by white actors (especially when paired romantically or sexually with a white character), so where applicable, you’ll find information on that in the notes column as well.
