She tries to live up to her namesake by being outspoken and tackling challenges that are faced by black people.

Miles Davies studio album


Actress Amandla Stenberg was born in 1998, she was named after Miles Davis's 1989 jazz album, "Amandla." She was born in Los Angeles, California, to Karen Brailsford, an African American, who is a writer, and Tom Stenberg, a white man from Danmark. 

I must confess when I was writing this article, and the pictures of Amandla made my heart skip, she looks like my girlfriend. Wow, I can't believe this. I can see her in Amandla's pictures.
