‘Hollywood’s It Girl. Her truth in black and white.’ — EBONY
Scandal’s Kerry Washington covers the latest March/April issue of EBONY.
In the issue, which hits newsstands tomorrow, Washington (and her fab bob) opens about her family, career, the death of Michael Brown/Ferguson and dishes on why she broke down #Blacklivesmatter on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards.
“I was really broken that morning,” Washington recounts of the off-the-cuff interview during which she shared the difficulty of being Black in America. “Watching that funeral, I was just broken. And I take all of who I am into a room. That’s where my mind was that day. I’m not going to let anyone segment me or make me exclude parts of who I am because they may be threatening.”
To read the full interview make sure to pick up the issue tomorrow.
