Honoring Black Women Who Rocked It In 2016 #WomensHistoryMonth
With the beginning of Women’s History Month, let’s that a look at the Black women that were killing the game in 2016.
1. Jo-Issa Rae Diop (actress, writer, director, producer, and web series creator)
Issa Rae is a breath of fresh air for the black community. Her recent TV series, Insecure and Giant have everyone debating and discuss relationships and social issues.
2.Rihanna (artist, actress, fashion designer)
Ms. RiRi is the only artist that has generated #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart from 7 consecutive albums. She recently was awarded the 2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year
3. Zendaya (former Disney star, artist, fashion designer)
Better watch out for Ms. Zendaya, she is a triple threat and a great role model for younger girls
4. Mo’ne Davis (baseball superstar)
She was the first African-American girl to play in Little League World Serious, the first girl to win and pitch a game in Little League World Series history. There is now a TV show about Ms. Davis on Fox called “Pitch” and she’s only 14 years old
5. Deshauna Barber (Miss USA 2016 from the District of Columbia)
And we cannot forget about Queen B…Beyonce (singer, songwriter, actress, and Queen B)
7. Yara Shahidi (Black-ish actress and model)
As much as we love to see Yara every week on “Black-ish”, this young actress is empowering women and young girls across the country. She recently received an award from the Women’s Entertainment Empowerment Network. And now there’s talk about a “Black-ish” spin-off show about Yara’s character journey to college. Will this be our generation’s Different World?
Let’s not forget about our forever First Lady…
8. Michelle Obama (former First Lady, lawyer, writer, and first African American First Lady)
I think everyone is hoping for Michelle Obama to run for president in 2020
