The Take deconstructs “The Strong Black Woman Trope” – and you need to check it out

The Take does brilliant video essays that dig into the heart of film and television tropes, themes, and subtexts. I’ve loved their content for years, when they went by ScreenPrism. But this video essay is a powerful one. I’m not ashamed to say I teared up.

Creators? Let’s give black women roles where they don’t have to be strong. They can just be. Thanks.
