Kerry Washington Covers Ebony’s Scandal Issue

She’s covering this month’s Ebony Magazine (looking fierce as usual) and inside, she shares intimate details from her past as well as the significance of portraying such dynamic female characters such as Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal and the slave, Broomhilda, in “Django Unchained.” She discusses the connection the two characters have, and how they relate to her own personal life.

Catch a few highlights:

Kerry on what she loves about Olivia Pope

In her professional life, she is so powerful and is this self-made woman…But in [Olivia’s] personal life, she is a mess and I kind of love that…I love that I get to embody all of that complexity because I also think it takes a certain level of progress for us to have a Black Woman that powerful be an emotional mess on television.

Kerry on the connection between Olivia and Broomhilda:

[Olivia] is the answer to Broomhilda’s prayers…I’m grateful that these two women on opposite ends of history, on opposite ends of their experience, both strong women but in such different ways, can exist at the same time.

It’s definitely Kerry season.

In this issue, which is pegged “The Scandal Issue,” Ebony also lists 50 scandalous events that have rocked Black culture and features an article titled, “What Really Happened to Pastor Zachery Tims” which examines how the once reigning pastor of a Florida mega church died mysteriously in a New York hotel room.

You can catch this issue when it hits newsstands Feb. 5.
