Sheryl Lee Ralph has always been a bright light for us to admire. Now, with the success of Abbott Elementary, she has gained a new platform to shine and for a new generation to discover her.

EBONY correspondent Jenn Rodriguez spoke with the legendary actress about her new TV ONE episode of Uncensored and about being able to speak her authentic truth.

"I feel like I've been speaking all this time but I didn't realize that my mic was muted. But with this win, I have become unmuted and people are enjoying what they're hearing. It has just been amazing for me to be able to speak my truth, talk the talk and continue to make the walk not just for myself but for others," shares the icon.
