is a national treasure and should be respected as such. Aside from being the iconic #WinifredBrooks
, she has also worked as a voice actor for decades, a pioneer of sorts seeing as she is one of few black people to thrive in the industry. Cree’s voice can be heard on all of your favorite shows, old and new. #RepresentationMatters
and with Cree, black children, and adults, were FINALLY able to see themselves in these characters and/or opportunities in an industry they didn’t think they stood a chance in. We thank you Cree. We love you! Continue to inspire and be great! You are truly a voice of a generation! ✊🏾 #BlackGirlMagic #BlackGirlsRock #BlackWomenAreSoDope #BlackCulture #BlackExcellence #BlackPride #MelaninMagic #BlackLikeVanilla
is a lot of things. She’s a mother, an artist, an actress—and, she’s the voice of your childhood. As the vocal force behind characters like Penny from “#InspectorGadget
,” and Elymyra from “#TinyToonAdventures
,” Cree has made a career bringing some of your favorite cartoons to life. In an industry that doesn’t boast a lot of diversity on or off screen, characters like Susie Carmichael and people like Cree are especially important. Historically, white voice actors would provide the voices for all characters, regardless of race or background. Today, thanks to the work of Cree and others, cartoons are beginning to better represent the kids that look to them for a little bit of guidance and a whole lot of unadulterated joy.
