The NAACP Image Award winner took to Instagram recently to share her excitement of her split-issue cover, posting photos and admitting that she was overcome with emotion. In this spring issue, the Black-ish star talks her career, comedy and more. “I hope they look at me and think, ‘That lady looks like she accepts herself,’” she says.
