Kerry Washington is fabulous on the psychedelic March/April Ebony cover.
Inside the issue, Kerry discusses future projects, family and why celebrating her second Emmy nomination last August took a backseat to Mike Brown’s tragic death.
If you recall, Kerry was very vocal about Mike Brown and the plight of black Americans during a pre-Emmy telecast, stating, “You know, this has been a really complicated day for me. I started the day watching the funeral services for Michael Brown. And so it’s a lot to wrap your head around being an African American in this country right now.”
Kerry revisited that moment in Ebony‘s current issue.
“I was really broken that morning. Watching that funeral, I was just broken. And I take all of who I am into a room. That’s where I 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.”
