 What are Black Hallmark Christmas Movies?

In short, they are movies created by the Hallmark Channel featuring a predominantly Black or African-American lead or cast.

According to the IB Times:

“When it comes to African American and Asian romantic leads in 2017 Hallmark movies, the number is zero. ” 

William (Bill) Abbott, the president and CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, the parent company of the Hallmark networks said “I think that you will see significant change over the years as we continue to evolve our content.”

At that point, there was a concerted effort to create more Hallmark Christmas movies with Black actors.

“Christina Milian and Jerrika Hinton are making their Hallmark debuts this Christmas, but they’ve already made Hallmark history. 

The two are the first black actresses to be cast as romantic leads in a Hallmark Christmas movie, with Milian, an Afro-Latina, taking that place on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries with “Memories of Christmas” and Hinton on Hallmark Channel with “A Majestic Christmas.” “(Source: IB Times)

In 2019, “the network’s record 24 original holiday movies this season, four of them have black leads, according to Bill Abbott, who serves as CEO of Hallmark parent Crown Media Family Networks. And that’s down from last year, when five of its 21 original holiday movies had black leads.
