Sonequa Martin-Green  "I wish to live because life has within it that which is good, that which is beautiful and that which is love." -Lorraine Hansberry

So proud of my Disco fam for the Peabody nomination. So unbelievably proud. 🖖🏽❤️


Really proud to have lent my voice to a new Stand Up to Cancer PSA increasing awareness about clinical trials. There are many therapies currently used in cancer treatments that’ve been studied and made possible by participation in clinical trials. And it’s important that people from different ethnicities and backgrounds get involved so that researchers have more specified data to develop from. I’ve heard numerous stories of cancer patients becoming survivors due to treatments developed from trials. Link to PSA is in my bio.

Many of us have seen or heard about Parker Curry. About how the two year old was awestruck by the painting of the first Black First Lady of the United States. About how she had a dance party with Michelle Obama herself. We’ve heard how Michelle declared to her, “Maybe one day I’ll proudly look up at a photo of you!” and how when asked what she saw in the painting she replied with glee, “A queen!” And we saw that after the fact, when asked in an interview whether she’d like to be First Lady or President one day, Parker confidently answered, “President.” With all of this, what sears into my heart perhaps the most is her face in this photo. The look of jaw-dropped wonder. That quintessential spark, that life-changing moment in time when she saw herself immortalized on that wall and saw proof that anything was possible for her. Proving that visualization must come before actualization. And representation leads to manifestation.
Happy International Women’s Day everybody. May we continue to see. May we continue to do.


Red. Matte. “Winner.” 💋


So happy for my dearest and visionary @gregoryarlt for creating a capsule collection of red carpet lipsticks for @maccosmetics ! I was thrilled to wear his Matte Blue Red “Winner” and also his Deep Matte Bordeaux, “Apres Soirée.” Congratulations Gregory! There’s also a peachy nude named “The Envelope, Please.” They’re available online NOW and exclusively at MAC’s Century City and Melrose locations.
