“Brilliant…a worthy, lively contribution to an ongoing, perhaps never ending conversation.” 
Tom Shales – The Washington Post

“An impeccably mounted survey of voices from across the spectrum of African-American accomplishment, the first installment of “The Black List” is a rich and revealing work of portraiture. Result is a fluid, graceful, formally becalmed work that relies almost entirely on its subjects to animate the frame — which they do, effortlessly.”
Justin Chang – Variety

“From the first moment of this seemingly simple yet carefully refined achievement, I found myself unprepared for the emotional wallop that was to come. The final product is an inspiring mosaic that speaks to what it means to live as a black American, and serves as a meditation on how far we have to go as a nation in correcting the inequities that persist to this day.” 
S. James Snyder – The NY Sun

“This spare film collects 22 black celebrities’ insights as told to critic Elvis Mitchell–from Toni Morrison on how her race liberated her as a writer to Chris Rock on his dad’s theory about competing with white people.” 
James Poniewozik – TIME Magazine

“Listening to luminaries like Vernon Jordan talk about his personal journey is both touching and enlightening. As a whole, The Black List is an honest look at black leaders, and their importance in the culture… and The Black List is a chance for everyone to take a step towards understanding.” 
Steve West – Cinema Blend.com
