COVERS "ESSENCE" March 2012,
Says It's A Great Time To Be A Black Actress.
Kerry Washington, who will be honored at ESSENCE Magazine's "Black Women In Hollywood" luncheon this month, covers the latest issue of the magazine. Inside, she dishes on being a Black actress in Hollywood and how things are changing.
“I think it’s a really special time to be a woman of color in this business. The landscape of who has the power is changing. We are in more influential positions and are able to have a say in the stories that are told. I feel very lucky to be in the business now…”
And Kerry's also making history. As the star of SHonda Rhimes' upcoming drama "Scandal," Kerry will become the only Black actress to lead a drama based on a real-life black woman, high-profile crisis management adviser Judy Smith.
Loves it. Congrats Kerry!
