Phrase 'strong black women' is dehumanising: Taraji P Henson

Jul 08, 2020 19:22 IST

'The Empire' actress Taraji P Henson has said that she has issues with people using phrases like 'strong black women', 'black girl magic' as it dehumanises women of colour and belittles their pain. Speaking about empowering women of colour, Henson said black women are at the bottom of the social hierarchy and have been ignored for ages and she feels people need to be careful about using such words as they feel hurt and suffer just like others.
