Mo’Nique has been making many a headline of late, however the actress is ready to recast the spotlight on her Oscar winning talent.
April 24th will bring with it the theatrical release of her latest movie ‘Blackbird,’ which has had critics buzzing for months.
Produced by both Mo’Nique and Isaiah Washington (who also stars), the coming-of-age film focusses on the trials of seventeen year old Randy and his tense family life, hidden sexuality, and discovery of self.
That Grape Juice caught up with Mo’ to discuss the project, as well as the ‘blackballed’ controversy, ‘Empire,’ the strides of Black actresses, and much, much more. As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to.
