Tia Mowry Hardrict & Salli Richardson Honored During NAASC Sisters Awards

Tia Mowry discussed being honored:

“It [being honored] makes me feel amazing because it’s not just about me,” Mowry-Hardrict explained. “I do what I do to inspire, that’s what gives me joy. When I am able to inspire other women, especially Black women, to go after their dreams, to not give up, to know that they have a place in this world, and to know they have a voice, the feeling that I get is extremely rewarding, and being honored by an institution of learning with so much history makes me feel like I’ve truly made a difference.”

Salli Richardson discussed the barriers that prevent women from making progress in their respective fields:

“These challenges come down harder on us [Black women],” Richardson said. “I don’t wanna be a man. I’m a wife and I’m a mother and I can also be a leader of men. The more that men let us become our full selves the better the world is gonna be. With politics the way they are now, it’s going to take some leg work to ensure that women continue to be heard and treated as equals.”

She continued,

“Many of my friends and colleagues went to Spelman and they are really by far the most amazing Black women on the planet. My daughter who is in six grade already wants to go there. My goal is to make her a better woman than I am. The battles that we fight now as women will result in prosperity for our children.”

Congrats ladies!!
