Rare black female nudity...

For whatever reason black female nudity is very scarce in Hollywood. There's just not alot of black nudity in movies (at least not since the Blaxploitation era). Even in low budget indie/b-movies they are rare, and i don't know why. But then again black female roles in media is kinda rare to begin with, so maybe i answered my own question. A part of me can't help but believe that the marginalization is a combination of social taboo among black women, and the standard of beauty being blond hair and blue eyes in the western world. But i digress.

Here's a list of those rare occasion where a black actress has a nude scene.
