Murder in Boston: Roots, Rampage and Reckoning tells the story of the drama that ensued after a white man murdered his pregnant wife but blamed it on a Black man in 1989. Through Boston’s racial tensions and a media firestorm, Willie Bennett was falsely accused of the crime and spent 12 years in prison. The three-part series available exclusively on HBO even garnered so much attention that Boston Mayor Michelle Wu issued a formal apology just days ago.Bruce Goodwin II

You ever wonder how the South could have all those Black people and still have their electoral weight kneecapped? That’s part of what had New York Times columnist and author Charles M. Blow head off across the nation just before 2022’s midterm elections. Black believes Black Americans should move to the southern states to take control of legislatures and assert their political power. He chats it up with politicians, community activists, his family and more and it makes for some insightful, and infuriating, viewing.—Alvin aqua Blanco

Jeffrey Wright is back as the voice of The Watcher in What If…? season 2, who once again takes viewers on a journey that spans across the vast Multiverse minus Jonathan Majors’ Kang The Conquer. Like the first season, season 2 of the series questions, revisits, and twists classic moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Unlike the first season, Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios are doing things differently with the first episode premiering Dec.22 with a new episode debuting nightly for nine nights.

It’s the perfect binge for the holiday season for every Marvel fan.—Bernard Beanz Smalls
