Henson also shares the best part about being a Black woman.

Taraji P. Henson is headed to the BET Awards 2022 and is already looking to shut down the house.

She chatted with and shared the best part about being a Black woman — which she shares is how they love.

“I would say how we love,” she answered.

“We have a great way of nurturing and loving when we love. Sometimes it can be our trap because we love others more than we love ourselves.”
