The Delta features documentaries and films to educate and celebrate black history at 38,000 feet
Delta Air Lines is honoring Black History Month with the introduction of new, curated content in its in-flight entertainment lineup.
The premier career has refreshed its entertainment selections for the month of February, featuring documentaries and films to educate and celebrate black history at 38,000 feet.
A set of documentaries produced by Black filmmakers gives viewers a deeper understanding of the Black experience with “John Lewis: Good Trouble,” as well as Brian Stevenson’s lawyer and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative.
The flick “Mayard” tells the story of Mernard Holbrook Jackson, Jr., who built Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, a global transit hub for minority-owned businesses in Atlanta, creating jobs and great economic opportunity. Travelers can watch “Building Atlanta: The Story of Hermann J. Russell”, a businessman to learn more about his life and legacy and the founder of one of the largest black-owned construction companies in America.

With a bi-worthy lineup, Delta also hopes to celebrate its affinity for Atlanta, its hometown hub and the birthplace of civil rights.
“We will always be grateful to the leaders who have helped us build deep and lasting relationships with Atlanta,” said Tad Hutchison, managing director of community engagement Statement. “The films we are highlighting next month are a tribute to those friendships and remind us of the power of the community.”
