Audiences are still on a high from Black Panther and everything that the Marvel movie stood for. As we are amazed at the whole cast and a job well done, we cannot help to swoon over the ladies of the film. Strong, beautiful black women were depicted in ways we haven’t seen in a long time. Melanin-rich skin and natural hair were portrayed in the movie effortlessly.
