Black women aren’t stuck in the roles of yesteryear. Over time, they’ve graced screens – both big and small – playing versatile, relatable, and touching roles that help inspire #BlackGirlMagic all over the world.
Even in 2017, Black actresses are still making history with their presence and craft.
In honor of Black History Month, we honor the accomplishments of our Black entertainers who have undoubtedly contributed to this great nation.
