Taraji P. Henson has an important message for young women, particularly women of color, who are learning about the adversity they will likely to encounter in life: Don’t complain.
“As humans, everybody’s got problems. When you wake up every day, you wake up to obstacles to overcome just in that day,” she told students gathered at the White House Thursday for a screening of her new film, Hidden Figures. “If you don’t have the courage to look fear in the eyes and say, ‘Devil, you will not win,’ what are you going to do?”
“You [could be] Academy Award-nominated, but I couldn’t get there by complaining. I really want you to understand that. Be courageous enough not to complain.”
