Streaming giant Netflix has released the official trailer and release date for their upcoming documentary series based on the most prominent African Queens.
The series executive producer Jada Pinkett Smith had first announced the project last summer. Revolving around female powerhouses that shaped post-colonial Africa and aims to blend dramatization with factual recounts from historians.
Speaking on her passion for the project, Smith said “As the mother of a young Black woman, it is immensely important to me that she learns the lessons of the African Queens who paved the way for our success and the success of generations of Black women. I am very passionate and excited about bringing the stories and lessons of these powerful women to light in order to showcase their strength, leadership, and undeniable influence on history.”
The show written by Kenyan-born storyteller Peres Owino and British diplomat NneNne Iwuji, will follow the growth to prominence of Queen Nzinga of Ndongo and Matamba during the 17th century. The show will drop on the 15th February, 2023.
