Since the news about the death of stunt woman Joi Harris on the set of Deadpool 2 I thought we should big up some of the real Black Superheros
Professional stunt double, coordinator and author since the early 90′s. She was Jada Pinkett’s double for the Matrix. King-Devoreaux has spoken out against white stunt performers donning Blackface to double for Black actors when there are many Black performers who are capable and struggle to look for work.
Actress, author and stunt performer extraordinaire. Who hasn’t the veteran and Taurus Award nominee doubled for Halle Berry,
Beyoncé, Gabrielle Union, Rihanna, Vivica A. Fox
Hopkins has doubled for Halle Berry in numerous films but also Kerry Washington in Scandal
Born in Essex, this single mother of 3 was a hustling a supply teacher, model and film extra. When she was on the set of Patriot Games she heard there were no Black women stunt performers in the UK. She then started training to become the first. 50 years old and still doing YAS!
Damita Jane Howard
Howard is the go to stunt woman for our faves doubling for Danai Gurira on The Walking Dead and Angela Bassett on American Horror Story.
Independent filmaker, activist and stunt double.
Stunt woman, actress, writer, producer, and professional wrestler. WOW
She was a slayer. Nuff said. But really with skills like horse riding and martial arts Weeden has been slaying since forever.
Cheryl Lewis can do it all. Not only is she a pro stunt woman but she is a dancer, actor, aerialist, puppeteer and is trained in multiple disciplines of martial arts. She doubles for Simone Missick’s Misty Knight in Luke Cage.
Started doing stunt work since 2008 and has worked on many big movies including the hunger games and Girls’ Trip
And in the face of a million obstacles, they chose each other. When it seemed like they should give up, they chose each other. And they keep choosing each other in the face of every single twist and turn life brings them. Every single day. And that is not destiny. That is not fate. That’s commitment.
Sometimes I like to update my art here. I took 3 days to draw this Life is Strange fanart and I am very proud of myself. Since I started playing Life is Strange for the second time I noticed too many things I didn’t realized before, some quotes, scenes… it makes me more in love with this game. Please do not copy or reblog my art without the credits.
you know maybe i haven’t been exposed to enough gay relationships on tv, but i’ve never seen an episode of any show filled with as many nonchanlant yet passionate queer love scenes- wether it be kissing,talking intimately and flirtatiously, making love. the bold type exceeded all my expectations with tonight’s show. they really treated kadena like any other couple. hell, at times even better than jane and pinstripe. i love when representation is so subtle yet so potent. kat doesn’t care about labels while adena finds strength in them. and also the fact that these are woman of different ethnicities and religious backgrounds, it is representation that overcomes any cultural divisions. a completely intersectional experience.
based on current ratings, this show is in great danger of being cancelled. unless there is a significant elevation in viewers, so please if you have a login for the freeform app, or if you have cable, start watching. the show only gets better as we near the end of the season.
