Kerry Washington Does Capital File Magazine

Inside the issue Kerry discusses her role in For Colored Girls, being a successful actress, and everything in between.

On her role in For Colored Girls

“That play is such an important part of the American canon, but also of the canon for women of color. A lot of us have a For Colored Girls poem in our back pocket, the way you’d have a Shakespeare monologue in your back pocket.”

On her Childhood:
 “My parents always had PBS on. From a very young age, the subjects at the dining room table were affirmative action, sexuality education, low-income housing, education reform—the pros and the cons, the ideological histories, the sociopolitical contexts.”

On being a successful actress:
"I don’t think of it in terms of being difficult.There are much more difficult jobs than mine, like running the State Department! My job does not compare to Hillary Clinton’s.”

Love this woman!
