Famous, charming & single: Successful black women who show us that everything is possible
There is a never-ending and ever-growing number of exceptional, famous, and successful black women who prove nay-sayers wrong constantly, improve the world we live in and just prove to everyone that everything is possible.
While they have more important things to do than go on dates and run after men, it’s still a shock that the women we’re going to tell you about are not married and not in a relationship. It might be that they are way too impressive, and most men find it impossible to rise to their level and keep up.
Single or not, these beautiful and talented black women deserve all the recognition they get and more.

Renae L. Bluitt
Renae L. Bluitt is a champion of black women and their representation in the media. She is a filmmaker from New York City and has just released a Netflix documentary called “She Did That”.
In her documentary, Renae looks at black female entrepreneurs and the changes they are bringing into the world. She believes that black women need to be represented more as they are facing a lot of obstacles and coming out on the other side even more successful, and creating better brands and rising to challenge after challenge and killing it professionally.
These women, and many other black women, are doing their part in the world, succeeding at everything they set their minds on and teaching us equality at the same time. There’s no wonder why they are single – who could handle their success and their super busy lives, and even if they could, when would these amazing women have the time to meet men?
Love doesn’t seem to be their priority at the moment, but when they decide to make it, we are ready to support them in this endeavor just as we support them in anything else they do.
