With the emergence of more black actresses in starring roles on major network shows, and with more and more films starring black actors and actresses topping box-office charts, it looks as though black Hollywood is finally shining and getting the recognition it always deserved.
But before we continue with our applause of the faces that appear in front of the camera, it’s time we take a step back and honor those who play an important role behind the scenes in pushing black talent to the forefront of media.
As Black Enterprise’s 10th Annual Women of Power Summit approaches, we figured we’d do the honors in highlighting the black women who are making bold career moves in the realm of film and television. From writers to directors and producers, see who made our list of the leading power players behind the big and small screen.
