Inspiring Beautiful Black Women In Hollywood
There are several names to mention in Hollywood. These beautiful, black, fine women are not only great actresses; they also do a lot of social work. Jada Pinkett-Smith is an actress and a businesswoman. She is married to popular actor Will Smith. Together, the couple has put up the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation in Baltimore, Maryland that aids youth within their immediate community. Another beautiful black actress to admire is Halle Berry. She has played some of the most iconic characters in Hollywood such as Storm in X-Men and Catwoman. She is also an environmental activist.
Inspiring Beautiful Black Women In The Forefront Of Politics
Maya Angelou is known as an author and poet. But this beautiful woman, inside and out, has been at the forefront of politics because of her quest for racial empowerment. Another great figure that is truly inspiring is Shirley Chisholm. She is the first black woman to be elected in Congress in 1968 in New York. Another political figure today is Karen Bass, U.S. Representative for California’s 33rd congressional district. She is the first ever black woman that bears the title as Speaker in a state Assembly.
Movies Showing Struggles Of Black Women
There are several movies about black women that are truly worth watching. These movies do not only show their hardships and struggles as black women in an unfair society, it also shows how they coped and empowered themselves. Movies like these are always very self-empowering and I truly recommend it. One great movie is entitled ‘The Color Purple.’ It is about the struggle and the life of a young African American woman. Another recent movie is entitled ‘The Help’. This is about the point of view of African-American maids about white families.
Why Being Black Is Now Beautiful
Self-tanning lotions, tanning services, what gives? I noticed that since equality has finally set in society, a lot of white people are starting to admire darker skin and wants to have one themselves. I guess black is now beautiful these days and society is also beginning to realize that black women have so much to give and have so many talents. Just look at some of the most powerful people in society today – Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce Knowles, Michelle Obama, all beautiful black women who are truly inspiring.
