Tracee Ellis Ross
A brilliant raconteur and a bold advocate for social change, no-one owns a red-carpet moment quite like Tracee Ellis Ross. And few know how to use those moments in the spotlight to raise issues about equality, representation and calling out sexual violence quite like her. The award-winning actor best known for the boundary-pushing TV sitcom Black-ish is, of course, the daughter of the Motown superstar Diana Ross. In this episode of Pieces of Me, Tracee talks about that extraordinary inheritance, skewering abuse in Hollywood with satire and claiming the right to dress with unapologetic joy: “There is a revolutionary aspect to joy,” she says, “especially as a black woman.” See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
