Delta Refreshes In-Flight Leisure for Black Historical past Month

For the first time in nine months Delta Airlines brings new content to the entertainment on board, with a focus on Black History Month in February.

“From the moment a customer walks onboard, we want them to have an amazing experience and great entertainment options to be an integral part of it,” said Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Director of Brand Experience – In-Flight Entertainment & Wi-Fi. “Over the past few months, our team has been looking for the best movies and shows customers can enjoy on their next flight, and we can’t wait for them to sit back, settle in and enjoy what we’ve curated.”

In addition to first-time films like “Tenet”, “Mulan”, “The Invisible Man” and “The Call of the Wild”, Delta will introduce two new collections to celebrate Black History Month. These include documentaries by black filmmakers who need to give viewers a deeper understanding of the black experience.

From honoring John Lewis’ legacy to director Dawn Porter’s new documentary “John Lewis: Good Trouble” to a collection of films and interviews focusing on the achievements of the Equal Justice Initiative lawyer and founder Bryan Stevenson, Delta employs lawyers in the fight for justice and center.

Stevenson visited the airline’s headquarters several times over the past year to share his experience. He also attended a private screening of his film “Just Mercy,” hosted by Delta, one of the films starting this month at Delta Studio.

With these films, the airline underscores its connection to its hometown and birthplace of civil rights: Atlanta.

“We will forever be grateful to the leaders who have helped us build deep and lasting connections with Atlanta,” said Tad Hutcheson, executive director of Community Engagement. “The films we highlight next month pay homage to those friendships and remind us of the power of community.”

Customers also have the opportunity to see Building Atlanta: The Story of Herman J Russell, a documentary about the life and legacy of a transforming business leader and the founder of one of the largest black construction companies in the country, HJ Russell & Co. The story tells how he came from humble beginnings in the south and built two businesses there while also helping to integrate the multicultural workforce in Atlanta. HJ Russell & Co. was part of a joint venture, Holder-Russell, which was instrumental in establishing Delta’s global headquarters in Atlanta in the late 1970s. The joint venture has been responsible for managing the renovation work at Delta’s headquarters for over 30 years.
