Tonight NBC will premier a new drama that takes place at the Playboy club. The only black actress is Naturi Naughton, former 3LW singer and “Notorious” actor who played Lil Kim. In an article for Black Voices she describes her character “Brenda”. Quote: “My character, by the name of Brenda, she’s one of the first black bunnies at the club in Chicago.
It’s 1961, she’s very ambitious, she’s a very strong, opinionated young woman. And I think she’s a fun, spirited girl, too. She has a good time. She doesn’t let some of the negative energy affect her, but she’s also very smart and she knows what’s happening in the world. And she’s not willing to let that stop her from dealing with the Civil Rights and so many things that affect her as being an African American in the ’60s.
She’s very strong and willing to go for her dreams.”
