Beautiful Brown Girls recently had the opportunity to interview the talented statuesque beauty Tasha Smith. Smith stars in the Tyler Perry sitcom For Better or for Worse. She reprises the role of Angela Williams from the hit film Why Did I get Married, along with Michael Jai White who also reprises his role (Michael Williams) from the film as well. Smith has a big personality, bright smile and loads of wisdom. She shared a few of her thought with BBG:
On positive black images in the media
We know that images inspire and provoke people to dream, to pursue their dreams, to believe in themselves. It is important for us as African Americans to put positive images on the screen, that our daughters, granddaughters and children to come will be inspired by so that they can pursue a dream, and believe that it can come true regardless of what obstacles they may face, and regardless of what society says.
On the buying power within the African American community
African Americans spend enough money in a year to probably buy CBS. If you really think about it we are a cash cow of a community. Unfortunately we do not turn that financial momentum over in our community.
