From the Hood to Hollywood: Taraji P. Henson Empowers Women with Honest Speech [VIDEO]


Just like the title of her touching memoir, “Around the Way Girl,” Taraji P. Henson keeps it all the way real while visiting our sister station in Detroit.

In the speech above, she touched out chasing your dreams and not allowing “they” (as DJ Khaled would say) to tear you down. She also encouraged us to lift up our sisters no matter what the situation is! The speech was genuine and from the heart. The “yaas”,”speak it”, and “that’s it!” coming from the audience should speak for it self.

Check out the FULL speech from our favorite around the way girl, Taraji P. Henson above.
