The Watsons Go to Birmingham actress says she still experiences racism regularly, and was even referred to as a "Black monkey" by a bigoted caller to a radio show while she was promoting the film. “I put that out there because I wanted people to see this is what happened, so let’s not get really comfortable and let’s not forget to teach how wrong this is and to teach love,” she explains.
