Happy Wednesday Worthy Villagers! This week will be the launch of our new segment, Women are Worthy Crush Wednesday! Our first #WAWCW is going to the beautiful, talented, fabulous and incomparable Angela Bassett. I had to start off with a bang right?

As a New York native, Bassett is securing a strong fan base from her captivating roles in some of our favorite movies today! Movies such as What’s Love got to Do with It, Malcolm X, The Rosa Parks Story and one of the top five cultured movies in 2018, Black Panther.  She has had the pleasure to be a 4x Emmy nom, 9x BET Award nominee, Golden Globe winner and the list goes on.

Her presence on our television screens are undeniable as an actress but I’m not sure she is getting the well-deserved light shined upon her as an activist. She supports programs for the youth and speaks out on unfortunate occurrences such as the Charleston church shooting.  As a wife, mother, and friend, Angela Bassett is leaving a legacy and using her platform to be a voice! Let’s welcome her into our Worthy Village and keep her head lifted!
