I love the idea of seeing a new generation of black actresses who play good roles in film and television. The greatest joy I’ve taken in recent years, has been to Tara see appear in true blood . I could not believe that a dark-skinned black woman with braids appeared in a series of great success. As it happened, I really like the series, but seeing good actress like Rutina Wesley, on screen is a joy and an incentive to watch True Blood. A series that I really like.
I had not yet recovered from the surprise, when a friend of mine told me about “scandal” by skype. She didn’t explained any thing to me too, she just said, -As you study law, this series is perfect, to encourage you to never give up.- And laughed as she sent me greeting from Ausralia “those are the skype things of ”
So I looked online, and there was the series. And what, surprise when I saw that the smart and bold, Olivia Pope, was played by a black actress. Kerry Washington‘s ability to convey on-screen, the strength of a woman who could solve the lapses of the powerful, without even blinking, left me impressed.
This morning as I write this article, I can still see in my mind the images of the new James Bond movie “skyfell”. And yet I can not believe that “Miss Moneypenny” is played by Naomie Harris. She is a wonderful spy an 007d right hand . Her action scenes with the car, left me breathless.
And now waiting to see “Afro Samurai” transformed in to a woman. I love the new addition to the walking dead series , Danai Gurira’s Michonne. An ebony actress who handles a katana like a perfect samurai. Seeing how she handles the katana. One would say that she comes from a family of samurai.
This is my first post about black actresses. They are re full of power, and come to stay.
Thank you to all for making a difference.
