Terri Vaughn, along with Cas Sigers, has produced  a documentary about Black actresses in Hollywood entitled “Angels Can’t Help But Laugh.”  The documentary features Black actresses including Regina King, Tichina Arnold, Meagan Good, Jasmine Guy, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Wendy Racquel Robinson, Vanessa Williams and countless other Black actresses talking about racism that they have experienced in Hollywood.  The documentary specifically addresses the limited and mostly negative images of Black women on television and in film.  Vaughn made the documentary to give Black actresses the ability to exercise their voice and ask that Hollywood listen.  Check out the trailer above.
