Javicia Leslie

As the First Black Batwoman, Javicia Leslie is Disrupting Gotham — and the Comic Book World

In the second season of CW’s “Batwoman,” Javicia Leslie takes the cape and cowl from season one star Ruby Rose — and becomes the first black Batwoman in the process. Leslie talked with LX News host Ashley Holt about the “light and the dark” of holding that title, and how women like Eartha Kitt, Halle Berry and Cicely Tyson helped blaze her trail.
