You know us, we’re ALWAYS on the look out for a good movie — especially ones that speak to the truth of #blackgirlpower. And with the Olympics currently giving us life (shout out to Simone and Simone and Michelle), the trailer for “Hidden Figures” was just the cherry on top. Starring Taraji Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae as real-life women who helped put the first man on the moon, “Hidden” looks like a funny, entertaining and worthwhile tribute to the power of Black Women. Take a look.

Dope, right? But where are all our other movies that put some ‘spec on Black women for being the rulers we know they are? Well, we made a quick list.
