Dec 2021 / jan 2022: TESSA THOMPSON

Tessa Thompson has received praise for her striking performance in Passing. The story about the inner world of Black women is a narrative that’s all too rare in Hollywood. With her new production company, the acclaimed actress is determined to upend the system by telling more of our stories and creating more diverse and nuanced lead movie roles for Black actresses. “There is the opportunity to put so many different kinds of Black women on-screen in parts that don’t get to be the love interest, that don’t get to be the love seeker, that don’t get to take up space in that way,” says Thompson, who’s determined to reimagine the portrayal of Black actresses as different types of protagonists.

Adrienne Warren Tells the Rest of Emmett Till’s Story in New Role

Seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin’s death at the hands of George Zimmerman in 2012 became the catalyst for many to learn about the 1955 kidnapping and murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till. Just like Martin’s death is credited for sparking the Black Lives Matter movement, Till’s death is also recognized for boosting the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. And JET, EBONY’s sister publication, played a pivotal role by being the first national magazine to run open casket images of Till’s mutilated body. What the ABC series, Women of the Movement reveals is that we don’t know nearly enough about this history. That is one of the many reasons, Tony-winner Adrienne Warren, tells EBONY she signed up to play Till’s mother.

All it took was one trip to South Africa for Ingrid Best to realize her life had been forever changed. “I was blown away, especially because I grew up in the Bay Area not far from Napa,” Best tells EBONY. “I’ve spent tons of time in California’s wine region, but I really just had no idea that there was the wine country in Africa that is equally as majestic.”  The marketing powerhouse known for her work with the spirits division of Combs Enterprises and her management of Jay Z’s partnership with Bacardi, is now the CEO & Wine Negociant at iBest Wines, a wine venture that she’s launching this spring.

The first time photographer and cinematographer Barron Claiborne held a camera he was 10. “My mother found a camera—large format 4×5,” shares the shutterbug. “The first thing I shot was myself.” Self-taught, the Boston native studied books by iconic photographers like Ansel Adams to inform the depth of his own black and white photographic works. Now, students at art schools globally study Claiborne’s epic artwork.
