Kerry Washington COVERS “ESSENCE” March 2012, Says It’s A Great Tme To Be A Black Actress

Kerry Washington, who’ll 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.

She said,

“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 “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.

 

Sounds exciting.  Congrats Kerry!
