Looking for a powerful 20th century heroine to bring to life

I have several women that I portray that cover 18th, 19th and early 20th century. I am now looking to portray a powerful, influential African-American woman of the late 20th century. Some one who has made an impact on our community far and wide but little is known of her. Any suggestions?

  1. Hmmmmm…his is a tough one because it’s hard to know what is considered “powerful” or “influential”. I’m influenced by women who beat the odds, like Maya Angelou. And inspired by creative hearts like Cecily Tyson. I wouldn’t know about this one!
