I'm proud to be an American. I'm proud to be an African American in America. I've had some interesting experiences: some great, some not so great, but I love it here.
When I became a director, I wanted to convince a very reluctant Sidney into allowing me to go on the journey of his life. Sidney had gone ahead of every other African American actor.
As an African American actress, there are people who have been staples in my life that opened a door that I can walk through. I hope that I can have that impact.
Take the time to discover how African-Americans have had a great impact on this country. In science, education, literature, art, and politics.
To be a Negro in America is to hope against hope.
