9 African Kings and Queens Whose Stories Must Be Told On Film

Hollywood often portrays the enslavement portion of Black history. The constant portrayal of Black people as only slaves inaccurately and negatively contributes to the Black narrative.

Most people are familiar with the story of Makeda, Queen of Sheba. She is most famous for her long occupation of Arabia and Ethiopia and her union with King Solomon. The story of their union and her reign is repeated in the Quran and Bible. Another familiar African queen is Cleopatra. However, due to the white casting of the film, the story is rarely associated with Black people and, therefore, not seen as a part of Black narrative.

This ABS Original covers eight other African queens and kings with intricate stories that could accurately and positively expand the Black narrative.
