Black creatives have been making their mark on the industry since its inception. Oscar Micheaux is regarded as the first African-American feature filmmaker, he was a producer, director, and author. Throughout his career, he made 44 films. Oscar founded Micheaux Film & Book Company; its first project was the feature film The Homesteader, based on Micheauxa's book of the same name.

The work of filmmakers like, Oscar Micheaux, paved the way for today's, black writers, directors, producers, and filmmakers. This month, we're shining a spotlight on Gen Y and its creator.

Gen Y is produced by A Delinquent Production and currently streams on 4 Stream.

Gen Y follows the lives of three black friends and their relationships with each other and their partners. Gen Y takes a look at sexuality, love, friendship, and life from the black millennial perspective.
