Corinealdi will be starring in the iconic role of ‘Belle’ that was so famously played by the late Madge Sinclair. She also opens up about why this “Roots” remake is so important to the current generation, how she deals with the pressures of being an African-American women in Hollywood and the moment she knew that acting was her calling.  Check out more photos and excerpts from the conversation below:img-emayatzy-corinealdi_181943976258

On the pressures of being both an actress and ‘being’ Emayatzy…

“It’s not something I feel pressured to be; I don’t feel like I need to be a strong black woman to make sure I’m a good example. It’s something that just is, will be.”

On why the Roots remake is so timely…

“I think now it’s such a perfect time given the climate that we’re in. We still have a lot more room to go. The fact that we have a Black Lives Matter movement along with Roots coming out again, there’s room for a conversation to be had as a result. That’s when I said, “I would be humbled to be a part of this for what it can be and the whole generation that it can speak to.”

On the Roots reaching a new generation…

“That’s why I love that in doing this one, it isn’t, “We’re doing this one so that it can be better than the original because that one missed the mark in some way.” No. This is an opportunity to speak to another generation and that’s what’s important.”

On when she knew acting was her passion…

“As far as the moment that I felt when god was tapping me on my shoulder, I do remember the moment where I realized, “Oh wow, this is what I want to do.” It came when I was 18. I had been acting and everything before then—I had been doing summer theater and was involved in everything I could be in except for drama in high school because I was an athlete. I was like, “Oh I’m not going to be in the drama department. That’s so silly.”img-emayatzy-corinealdi_181656437861

On the conversation she had with her parents and God about acting… 

“It was, “I really think I want to be an actress…can I do that? How do you do that?” “I don’t know, but I think you should do it.” “Well that’s what I’m going to do.” It was literally like that. That is how the decision came, and the path was made from there.”

“Roots” airs tomorrow beginning at 9 p.m. EST on History Channel

regular guest or even an official contributor are pursuing a line of argument that seems
perfectly congruent with the Fox worldview, only to have Kelly seize on some part of it and call it out as nonsense, maybe
even turn it back on you. You don’t always know when, how or even if the Megyn moment will happen;
Kelly’s political sensibility and choice of subjects
are generally in keeping with that of the network at large.
But you always have to be ready for it, no matter who you are.

these arguments have some colorable merit. The constitutionality of our income tax system including the role played within that system by
the Internal Revenue Service and the Tax Court has long been established.
We affirm the dismissal of Crain’s spurious
“petition” and the assessment of a penalty imposed by the Tax Court for instituting a frivolous proceeding.

Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but
I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good
platform.

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some
help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin.
Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it
