this is worth every second of watch.
I never saw The Help, and I’ve never watched Viola Davis or Octavia Spencer’s work, but I was completely riveted and drawn in with this conversation, which is so, so important on so many axes. Jasika Nicole speaks the truth: this is absolutely worth every second, and I was upset when the video cut off. More of this conversation!
(Also, since watching this, Viola Davis has become Penelope in my space version of the Odyssey, because holy cats, lady! Holy cats, you are riveting! And Octavia Spencer, I want you to rise up and rule Hollywood now. I’m so glad I know more about these amazing ladies.)
