Quirky WOC 27/50: Amandla Stenberg

With roles in both the sci-fi and fantasy genre,she thoughtfully plays interesting and different roles not normally given to young women of color. At only the age of 15, she already has had a remarkable resume playing in two tremendously popular series: the Hunger Games and now Sleepy Hallow. Paired her sharp wit that can be seen in her clever tweets she has in a short period of time become quite a force to be reckoned with.
