8 Most Beautiful African Women

Africa is not only famous for its wildlife and plant life but also for the wondrous beauty of its women. For many years, black women’s beauty has been a controversial topic.

They have been a subject of ridicule because they hide their hair under European women’s hair. Other women go to the extent of bleaching their skin.

Black women’s beauty is usually underrated because they don’t meet the western standards of beauty. Just because you don’t have pale skin, blue eyes and flowing hair doesn’t mean you are not beautiful.

So my list of 8 most beautiful black women mostly consists of women who are comfortable in their skin and hair. It will also feature women who are making remarkable differences in their field, including fashion, entertainment, or politics.
