Suso Mbedu: As black women, we are made to feel like our biggest risk.Hollywood

As a South African schoolgirl, Tuso Mbedu understood the basic understanding and struggles of being a black woman, but it wasn’t until she started working in the entertainment industry that black women were seen as ‘that’s a risk’. I realized that She comes to business.”

“As black women, we’re made to feel like we’re at the biggest risk, and that’s why we’re the least supported,” Mbedou said, explaining that people judge communities by the color of their skin. I hope to start seeing it as an artist instead of just doing it.

That’s why she put all her hopes in her movie, The Woman King with Viola Davis. It is about the Agojie, an all-female army that fought to protect people from enslavement in the 19th century.

“This is not about change within an industry where storytelling is a risk…We hope that going forward with this they will understand that the investment in us is also worth it. We can lead the story, we can tell the whole story, and we are complex beings capable of much more than just the stereotypes imposed on us.”

Here, the actor whose acclaimed performance in The Underground Railroad brought the South African star to Hollywood has been very vocal about the need for inclusivity and made Davis proud for leading the baton for change. I assure you. But he often wonders about the need to fight for basic needs.

“I see Viola fighting within the industry. thinks, why does she have to fight so hard?
