The actress is among the five women who will be honored on February 2012 at the Black Woman in Hollywood luncheon. The actress covers the magazine’s March 2012 topic as a part of the honor. Washington looks stylish and confident in her white gown and she told the Essence Magazine that the flow is turning to the Black Woman in Tinseltown.
Furthermore, she said, it is truly unique to be a woman of color in this business and that the landscape of who has the power is changing. Women are influential and this honor has allowed us to have a saying in the stories that are told. I feel very lucky to be in the business now and I am proud of this.
