Taraji P. Henson took to social media to thank her fans for supporting her latest film, Proud Mary, which scooped $9 million at the box office over the holiday weekend.
In the video posted on her Instagram page, TPH stressed the importance of supporting films with a black female lead.
Thank you is not enough.
It’s so important that we support films that star – especially black females and executive produced by black females.
Gabrielle Union has one coming out. It’s important that we support each other because we are only making room and opening doors for those coming behind us.
Congratulations to all of my ICC Friends who won our Proud Mary Giveaway, which included passes to the movies, a hat, t-shirt and a poster.
