From Magic Negro to Noble Negro! | Black Geeks Meet

Now let me introduce you to a new character archetype that I’ve affectionately called – THE NOBLE NEGRO.  I came up with this term when I started noticing a shift in the storytelling paradigm several years ago.  I noticed this character showing up in stories who I would consider a second potential hero, equal to the hero or better in every way.  And I find that this role is given to black actors or actors of color more than the hero role also.
