Maria P. Williams writer, producer, actor:
Thanks to the early accomplishments of Williams, as the first Black woman to produce, write and act in her own movie in 1923, The Flames of Wrath, we have female directors and producers like Oprah, Ava DuVernay, and Shonda Rhimes. Beyond film, the former Kansas City teacher was also an activist, and detailed her leadership skills in the book she authored, My Work and Public Sentiment in 1916.
