This time of the year can get so busy that every now and again, all you want to do is sit back, relax, and curl up with a good book (Fragments of Us is available now- shameless plug) or movie.   If you're like me...I've consumed way too many Hallmark Christmas movies.  Nothing like a good romance movie, however, I would enjoy them even more if there were a few women of color starring in some of them.  If you feel like me, then I've compiled a list of some GREAT interracial movies staring black women of color.  Take a peek and HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY!
