Lots of stories have been documented about black women and the significant impacts they made in history.

From politics, the arts, science, among others, black women have broken barriers and contributed to the development of the world.

But they didn’t achieve these without setbacks, including gender and racial biases.

Interestingly, their lives and moments, as well as challenges, have been brought to life on screen, and movie lovers have been exposed to what it feels like to be a black woman.

The following are women-centric movies that were produced not only for entertainment but to inspire, empower and make women proud of who they are:

The Color Purple (1985)

 

Claudine (1974)

 

Lady Sings The Blues (1972)

 

12 Years A Slave (2013)

 

Set It Off (1996)

 

Waiting to Exhale (1995)

 

Mahogany (1975)

 

Beloved (1998)

 

Love Jones (1997)

 

Brown Sugar (2002)
