Endless List of Favorite Star Wars Ladies: The Black Actresses of Star Wars

“I am originally from Rwanda and science fiction is not a big thing there. I watched the first trilogy after I was cast for Stass Allie/Adi Gallia. I had no clue what Star Wars was about, so my English flat-mate sat me down and made me watch it. I was hooked after that. I liked the creativity behind it.”

- [x] Lily Nyamwasa, actress for Jedi Master Stass Allie

Statuette of Sucellus. Discovered in Vienne, France. Roman, 1st to 2nd century A.D. Bronze. Walters Art Museum. 

Description from the Walters:

Sucellus was a major Gaulish deity associated with the underworld, whose attributes include his wolf-skin garment, a mallet or hammer (now missing from his upraised hand), and a small jar called an “olla.” This statuette is the earliest and finest of any known Sucellus image. The portrayal is reminiscent of Classical Greek style, and he resembles the Greek hero Heracles. Behind him, like a symbol of worship, appears an oversized mallet with five smaller mallets radiating from it. The statuette was excavated from the “lararium” (household shrine) of a Roman house in France.

DARTH VADER was voiced by JAMES EARL JONES in the ORIGINAL 3 Films that began STAR WARS’ fucking popularity!! REALLY!?

Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) was also the Hero of the 2nd DEATH STAR battle who shot the power core that blew up the Death Star winning the Battle of Endor!!

Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) was the leader of the Jedi Council in ALL the Prequels, and the only Jedi Master to Have a Purple Lightsaber!!
(TRIVIA: with the words “Bad Motherfucker” engraved on the hilt by George Lucas, as an allusion to Jackson’s character in Pulp Fiction)

Luminara Unduli (Mary Oyaya; Kenya) and her padawan…

Barriss Offee (Nalini Krishan; Fijian) are WoC, and are in Episode II & III, as well as the Clone Wars cartoon.

Adi Gallia (Gin Clarke) was a Jedi Council Member in Episode I & II.

Stass Allie (Angelique Perrin) was Adi Gallia’s relative who was in Episode III and the Clone Wars.

Who are these ignorant fucking assholes who are boycotting Star Wars Episode VII?
They’re supposedly “Star Wars Fans”!?

These dumbasses don’t know or remember several main Black Characters across both Trilogies, not to mention hundreds of Expanded Universe stories and Cartoons featuring Black Characters!?

And they claim to be Fans of Star Wars!? They’re full of Shit. These Racist Liars probably haven’t seen a Star Wars film before.

Are you motherfucking kidding me!?
Are Humans really this fucking stupid!???


Except for “sacrapos”, “omnos” and “voveso in mori” all the lyrics on this album are original Gaulish texts, between 1600 – 2100 years old. They were discovered through diverse archaeological excavations during the last two centuries. Such texts were usually inscribed in small zinc plates, pottery (such as plates, disks or bowls) or tiles.

We decided to leave the songs on this album untranslated – for several reasons. On one hand there are parts of its lyrics where no translation is scientifically assured. Science still is in the dark about diverse aspects of the Gaulish language.

On the other hand, the ancient texts set into music on this album, are very intense and profound as they deeply ladle from the rich, figured and mystical Gaulish language. A language full of imagery, vigor and virtue and, not forgetting, a language of another aeon.

These lyrics are texts of magic, of spirituality and of cursing; texts of yearning and passion, of ardent love and fearful sadness, of burning hate and fury, as well as of delight and rapture… in short words: lyrics written by human life. It appears to be nearly impossible to adequately render those text’s substance in today’s English language. We’d fall short of the Gaulish originals.

So, we’d rather leave those words in their arcane beauty – untranslated.
