Hollywood has made some progress toward diversity in films, but it's not enough. Fortunately, there are movies with inspiring African American role models who positively affect girls' ideas of their self-worth. From Tiana, the first Black Disney princess, to Misty Copeland, the first Black principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater, the hardworking heroines in these films work hard and overcome adversity to accomplish their goals. Some of these titles might need more parental input when tough topics like racism and enslavement come up. But ultimately they provide kids with messages of strength and perseverance.
