When we first got introduced to young black actress, Amandla Stenberg, she was the young Rue, who battled alongside Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games Part 2. Prior to that, the world got a whiff of her strong voice and character after her video – Don’t Cash Crop by Cornrows – went viral.
After that moment, her name was added to the list of young African/American women revolutionizing the walls of African/American beauty today.
For the February 2016 edition of TeenVogue, Amandla sits with fellow Black beauty reformer, Solange Knowles for an interview between ‘sistas’. In a few minutes they touch on race, Natural Hair, cultural appropriation, being a black actress, the machine that is Hollywood and more.
