Animate Me! 10 Black Female Cartoon Characters We Love

Princess Tiana from “Princess and the Frog”

Ooo Princess Tiana, or Ti Ti as I call her. As a child who loved Cinderella but found her standard of beauty a bit unattainable, I can’t tell you how excited I was when I learned that Disney was making a movie with a black princess. Some people, like my mom, were really in their feelings that Tiana was a frog for most of the movie but I think the message of her character, whether she was in human or frog form, was very clear. Tiana was goal oriented. Unlike the other princesses, her main aim was not finding a prince to rescue her but workign hard to get what she most desired. And it just so happens that she picked up a man along the way who was down to ride. How can you not love that? Tiana is the perfect example of having it all.
