I love Zombie movies. The fast pace and eminent danger the characters face is exhilarating. There is something about an apocalypse that would probably reveal what a human being is truly capable of. Recently Black women have taken the forefront on the small screen when battling the undead. No characters represent a strong woman faced with fierce survival skills better than Michonne and Sasha from AMC's The Walking Dead and Warren from Z Nation on the SYFY network. These sisters have miraculously survived the Black Horror Curse and have lived to see not only another episode, but another season.
Michonne played by Dania Guiria on The Walking Dead is the baddest female or male you will ever see on the television screen. When she wields her dual katana swords you know whatever is at the end of those blades is about to say goodbye from this world. Sonequa Martin-Green plays Sasha the resilient stone-faced woman who will persevere by any means necessary. Over on the SYFY network Kelita Smith as Warren is the sexy take-control leader who can make putting a zombie down look effortless. I cannot remember a time when Black female characters were so kick-ass on the small screen. I hope it never ends.
