Angela Bassett Recalls Going From Once Living In A Housing Project In Florida To Having Her Dreams ‘Fulfilled’

“I must also take a moment to express gratitude to the women who have a lifetime of love in my heart and my spirit — who’s stories I’ve been honored to tell,” Bassett said. “From Bernadine, Stella, and Queen Ramonda. To Rosa Parks, Tina Turner, Coretta Scott King, Betty Shabazz.”

“My representation of you on the screen put me on the path that a little Black girl, a high school student living in the Jordan Park housing project in St. Petersburg, FL, could have only dreamed of because of you,” she continued. “My dreams were not only fulfilled, but your stories have been immortalized on film for future generations to discover, to fall in love with, and to enjoy, to be inspired by your life.”
