Take Them To The Big Screen: 10 Black Women Who Deserve A Biopic

- By

Mahalia Jackson

Recording 30 albums throughout her career, the Queen of Gospel has been influencing contemporary singers, both within and outside of the church, for decades now . However it was her work within the Civil Rights Movement, which has had the greatest impact on society including lending her voice in praise for a fundraiser to support the strikers of the Montgomery Bus Boycott and singing “I Ben Rebuked and I Been Scorned” at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Who should play her: Honestly, I can’t see anyone else being able to physically pull off the role of Jackson but Queen Latifah. Plus she can sing – not as good as Jackson but enough to follow along with a pre-recorded track.
