Are you ready for an entire month celebration a black women?
No one can dispute or deny the tremendous contributions of the black woman to history in America and around the world. This March, Black History Mini Docs is proud to feature the leaders, the revolutionaries, the freedom fighters and the mothers of all mankind, the black woman. Throughout history women have nurtured, toiled, inspired, gave birth to and stood beside, history's greatest Black male heroes, however, often they are not given their proper respect. Well that time is over! Join us as we celebrate the famous and not so famous, the true soldiers and the unknown soldiers that would forge and continue to lay down a path for salvation and freedom for all mankind. BHMD is pulling out all stops, to feature in our mini docs and picture posts of great historical woman every day and evening. Until the very last day of March we will have “Micro Docs”, 90 Second “Mini Docs” and our “History Made” docs series that will feature stories of today's female Trail Blazers. Whether you love amazing leaders like Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hammer, Coretta Scott King, Harriet Tubman and Cleopatra or phenomenal entertainers like Lena Horne and Billie Holiday. Or perhaps you prefer sports hero's like, Serena Williams and Althea Gibson, I'm positive you won't be disappointed. So please don't miss this extravaganza. Be sure to log on to our Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and this very website to be inspired and uplifted with the multitude of fantastic stories about our most treasured resource, the woman of color.

Once again Neema is putting her coined phrase in action with VH1's newest original television series, The Breaks, currently filming in New York City, her hometown.
