TV: Black Lightning: Who is Anissa Pierce?

Black Lightning

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of new Netflix series Black Lightning. Released on a weekly basis, it follows Jefferson Pierce, a retired black superhero, who returns to his former life of vigilantism when crime starts to escalate within his community.
Black Lightning – which airs on The CW in the US and Netflix in the UK – has proven to be a hit, with critics and fans describing it as a series that is not only “powerful” and “fresh” but one that has a “strong sense of identity” too. 

Lifted straight from the DC Comics, the characters are great but one that has particularly resonated with the LGBT+ community is Jefferson’s daughter, Anissa (Nafessa Williams), the first black lesbian superhero to be seen on network television.
