Disney's First Black princess does not bite her tongue!

I have admired actress, Anika Noni Rose since I first saw her performance in the HBO TV series, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. She and Jill Scott made my Sunday nights. Now, her outspokenness on how writers of color are ignored, if not shut out, of publishing on all fronts unless they are willing to pen stereotypical garbage and be lectured on how to make a story "relatable" (and that's if their work is considered at all), has won her a permanent seat at my table. Read her enlightening, no-holds-barred interview in the April issue of VANITY FAIR at this link
