Kerry Washington Ebony Magazine April May 2015 Issue

‘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.

It's here! Check out our latest 2015 issue featuring the beautiful, the talented @kerrywashington!

    Why are her covers always photo-shopped to death? JMHO

  • We all have the profound responsibility (not just celebrities) to speak truth to power and to help others. The events of Ferguson represented a new era of the black liberation struggle. It further reminded people that we are not free yet. Kerry Washington is a famous actress. She has a blessed family and she is outspoken on various issues. What is most important is to follow the truth and to seek clarity in a world that can be complex.

    Kerry Washington is just not photogenic. It has nothing to do with Ebony being a black publication. I’ve very rarely seen Washington look good on magazine covers.
