Tiana | First Black Disney Princess (finally!!!)

You're looking at Tiana, the first black Disney Princess. Ever. What took so long? Are black people suddenly "in" and "hot" right now? Some "new" market to tap? Anyways, TeeTee (as I shall call her because I know her like that) made her first public appearance Aug. 6, 2009 at the 2009 National Association of Black Journalists Convention in Tampa, Fla. The voice of the character is Anika Noni Rose, that third girl in DreamGirls you probably don't remember, but who had an amazing singing voice. Go TeeTee! (Photo Credit: Disney)
