Taraji P. Henson was honoured with her very own star on the world famous Holywood Walk of Fame. The star’s close friends Mary J. Blige and director,
John Singleton paid tribute to the star at the ceremony.
Taraji took to the podium and gave an emotional speech during which she shared that her work was inspired by the generations that come after her. She shared in part, ” I want to say to all of the little brown babies all over the world, ‘Look at me and see you.’ I was a single mom, raised by a single mom and lived in the hood. I never focused on my circumstances. I focused on my dream and looked at God.”
Congratulations to Taraji P. Henson!
