@chinamcclain portrayal in #BlackLightning is so real and dope. It's also important for young women to see empowered versions of themselves. My sister just turned to me and said, "that's exactly what I would of done." She doesn't get to say that often enough.

WOW…. Just wow… #BlackLightning has one of the best pilots to air in all the superhero shows I’ve watched, straight to the point about The Problems Black People face and using that to kick off the return of the beloved superhero.. wow I must say I’m hooked. ⚡️
