Let's see... there was Shirley Chilsolm, Barbara Jordan, Michelle Obama, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Maya Angelou, Cicely Tyson ... High Profile Black Women who portrayed an image of Class, Strength & Beauty.

Today the Black Female Role Models represent Class, Strength & Beauty differently.  The two most prominent Black Female Role Models in 2014 are seemingly represented by Beyonce and (running a close race in 2nd Place) Nicki Minaj.  This NEW version of Class, Strength & Beauty is reinforced by other Black Female "Role Model" TV Shows like, The Housewives of Atlanta, Basketball Wives, & Sorority Sisters.

Examining the two different STYLES, in terms of the Black Female Role Models, which is most representative of TODAY'S BLACK WOMAN?... Is it TRULY Beyonce & Nicki Minaj?...and are TODAY'S Black Female Role Models a HELP... or a HINDRANCE...with respect to the IMAGE of Black Women and how they're portrayed (or how they portray THEMSELVES) in TODAY'S WORLD?
