According web site Ranker, these are the top 10 black actresses on screen as of today. A few of them are my personal favorite.

However, my favorite black actress is Lynn Whitfield, even though she appears in the ranking. I would have preferred her in the top ten.

The late great Cicely Tyson, even in her death last year, is featured in Ranker’s listing of top 150 Best Black actresses. Now if that isn’t history for the blacks, I don’t know what will be it.

So, let’s have some fun and think about all these women who have bought so much joy to the big screen. And while they are at it, they are giving us true black history moments.

  1. Viola Davis
  2. Angela Bassett
  3. Octavia Spencer
  4. Regina King
  5. Posthumously-Cicely Tyson
  6. Taraji P. Henson
  7. Lupita Nyong’o
  8. Alfre Woodard
  9. Regina Hall
  10. Nia Long

As African Americans, we are so blessed and fortunate to have such beautiful history celebrities. It is a shame that I could not stay all day and bring you more than ten.

There are thousands of alluringly talented black actresses from yesterday to today. So, let’s break out the band and kick it off with these Top 10, and while you are at, start looking for the rest…Of the Best.
