The Black Women in Horror and Science Fiction Database

The Women in Horror and Science Fiction Database (WiHSFDb) will be a website that explores and celebrates black women in strong and empowered roles in genre cinema. While many may assume that genre films exploited female characters in the past, WiHSFDb will be a place to highlight positive images of black women in horror and science fiction films. The website will include exclusive interviews with the actresses and filmmakers behind the characters as they look back and discuss what the roles meant to them. Each page will include insight from film historians and critics that will analyze how each movie and character affected audiences and changed film history. Visitors to the website will also be invited to keep the conversation going by sharing comments and adding their own video to the site. The Black Women in Horror and Science Fiction Database hopes to not just start a conversation about important roles that black women have played in genre films, but to encourage audiences to re-visit films with a new perspective and appreciation.
