Melissa De Sousa Vindicates The Character We Love to Hate in The New ‘Best Man’

    By advocating for a more complex portrayal of Shelby and bringing her ideas and creativity to the role, de Sousa proves she’s ready for her next act: being the woman behind the scenes. Currently, the Black Lightning actor is developing a project she hopes will expand representation for Black Latinas. “The roles for Black women and women of color are so incredibly limited, even to this day,” she says. “It is starting to get better, sure, but we’re just not there. I have to now develop the show I want to see for myself. I am about to start pitching that, and there’s going to be a Black Latina lead. I really love it and I hope that people really love it, too.”
