As Black History Month comes to an end, let's take a look once more at the Afro-Latinos we named "Most Beautiful" in 2012!
Melissa De Sousa, 44
Most Afro-Latinas in Hollywood are pigeonholed into playing Black roles or Latina roles. Not Melissa De Sousa! The half-Panamanian actress was hilarious as fiery Latina Karen Krantz (AKA Miss New York) in Ms. Congeniality (2000), and she was equally terrific as the African American Shelby in The Best Man (1999). Currently, De Sousa stars as a Latina named Gabriella Jimenez in the hit BET series, Reed Between the Lines. It used to be that you had to pick between being Black and Latina. Thanks to Melissa De Sousa and others like her, that’s not the case anymore!
