One of Hollywood’s brightest rising stars is Amandla Stenberg. She first came on the scene in the 2011 film Columbiana, and since then has asserted herself as one of the best young actresses in the industry.

She played Rue in The Hunger Games, giving a performance that cemented the character as one of the most beloved and memorable in the series. Stenberg has really broken out in the past few years with lead roles in The Darkest Minds, Everything Everything, and The Hate U Give.
She has garnered numerous awards and nominations for her work, including winning the Los Angeles Online Film Critics’ and Hollywood Film awards for Breakthrough Performance of the Year, a BET Young Stars Award, and a nomination for the Women Film Critics Circle Award for Best Young Actress.

Most notably, she won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in The Hate U Give. This put her among the ranks of legendary black actresses like Taraji P. Henson, Lupita Nyong’o, Octavia Spencer, Kerri Washington, Viola Davis, Angela Basset, and Whoopi Goldberg.
Though she has yet to become a household name, someone with Stenberg’s level of talent can’t be ignored for long, and I think we can expect great things from her in the years to come.
