As the Black Lives Matter continues to grow and develop strength across the country, more corporations are doing their part in the fight for justice and equality.

On Wednesday, Netflix announced that it was joining the BLM movement.

In a series of tweets, Netflix said, "When we say 'Black Lives Matter,' we also mean 'Black storytelling matters.' With an understanding that our commitment to true, systemic change will take time – we're starting by highlighting powerful and complex narratives about the Black experience."

Netflix said starting Wednesday, it will feature 'a carefully curated list of titles that only begin to tell the complex and layered stories about racial injustice and Blackness in America.'
