What are the similarities between Lauryn Hill, Kamala Harris, and Madame C. J. Walker? They’ve all accomplished tremendous feats in their careers, including becoming the first Black woman (and, in many cases, the first Black person) to make history. With the successful film Candyman, Nia DaCosta has joined their ranks as the first Black woman to have a top-selling film at the box office.
The sequel to the 1992 horror classic, which was released on August 27th, grossed over $22.3 million in its first weekend and debuted at number one. The stellar cast, lead by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Teyonah Parris, and written by Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld, helped her beat off the competition in theaters. IMDB
