anonymous asked:

can you recommend any pre-1970s movies featuring WOC? I dont mind subtitles either if they're foreign. I love vintage movies and fashion but I hate that so many movies are racist and that I can never see people who look like me:( One of my only icons is Tura Satana who is GOD to me
