"I don't know that I constantly think about being a Black woman. There's a ton of things we could say about how many opportunities are there, and the quality of opportunities out there. I tend to veer on the side of saying that we also have the opportunity to contribute. This is an age where you could put anything on Youtube, people can make films on their own." - from www.essence, com, October 12, 2012
