Children, Family, and Memes: Ballerific Woman: Yara Shahidi, From "Blackish" to "Grownish" 05 13 @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.com Ballerific Woman: Yara Shahidi, From “Blackish” to “Grownish” - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is BlackExcellence. These are Ballerific Women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of those special individuals is YaraShahidi, who is a young actress and model. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She’s best known for her role as Zoey Johnson of “Black-ish,” and it’s spin off show, “Grown-ish,” that premiered last week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the 17-year old isn’t a new face to the screen.

Beautiful, Best Friend, and Memes: "She's Gotta Have lt" Star, DeWanda Wise Lands Major Role in Marvel Movie 05 @balleralert “She’s Gotta Have It” Star, DeWanda Wise Lands Major Role in Marvel Movie - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It looks like someone else had to have it! We know her as Nola Darling from the SpikeLee Netflix series, “She’s Gotta Have It.” Marvel, on the other hand, wants to bring the beautiful DeWandaWise to the big screen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Details on her character have yet to be released, but she will be co-starring in “Capitan Marvel,” which is Marvel’s first female-led production. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rumor has it- she’ll be playing a superhero, “Monica Rambeau,” who is also the best friend of the main character, “Carol Danvers,” played by BrieLarson. If so, Wise has landed the role of a character with pretty good screen time. We’ll just have to wait and see! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Either way, this is without a doubt Wise’s biggest role to date, and a door-opener into Hollywood! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Other cast members for the film include SamuelLJackson, BenMendelsohn, and JudeLaw. Full fledge production for the film will begin this Spring. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations DeWanda!
