About the Series

“The Crazy Black Woman” was originally created for the stage in 2010 because of the shrinking roles for woman of color in Hollywood. It was a funny depiction of a black woman dealing with her ideas of life in general. It was chosen for the NAACP “10-minute Play Festival” and was touted as being funny and very truthful. Many attempts to revive this character was tried and failed until November 8, 2016 and the idea for the web series came when Donald Trump, against all odds, won the Presidential Election. Episodes are released… episodically and reflect the actual state of mind of the Crazy Black Woman.
