Powerful Discussion

Anika Noni Rose has appeared in groundbreaking roles including Dreamgirls, For Colored Girls and as the voice behind Disney’s first Black Princess, Tiana, in The Princess and the Frog. “I think it’s important to take on roles that explore social issues, roles that explore things going on around us. [I do that] either because the issue is not being spoken about and needs to have light shed on it, or because it’s being spoken about a lot, but there aren’t a lot of representations about it,” Rose, who has been nominated for multiple Academy Awards, told BET.com at the summit.
