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

- By

Miriam Makeba

Grammy award winner, who helped to take African music worldwide, Mama Africa is always revered in both her native South Africa and here in the States for her tireless dedication for the advancement of liberation for Black people including campaigning against apartheid South Africa, which got her banned from her own country. She was also married to both South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and Stokely Carmichael, which is kind of bad ass.

Who should play her: This was a tough one and I don’t want to throw Lupita N’yongo in a role because she’s Africa (that would be racist), so I’m going to have to ride with Jennifer “Effie in Every Role” Hudson – and that is reluctantly as her accent in Winnie was absolutely horrible.
