Here's A Woman Who Cares


Shortly after Henson did her own 'do, she announced a fundraising initiative through her non-profit organization, The Boris Lawerence Henson Foundation. The goal of the Free Virtual Therapy Campaign is to raise money for a therapy hotline to comfort and talk to underserved African-American communities. The funds will cover the costs of licensed clinicians to help people dealing with issues stemming from the pandemic.

Paying Respects To Katherine Johnson.


Back in February, Taraji paid her respects to Katherine Johnson, the famed NASA mathematician whom she played in the award-winning film, "Hidden Figures." Johnson died at 101-years-old long after she broke down racial and social barriers and was the first African-American woman to work as a NASA scientist. Henson took time to acknowledge the important effect she had on the world.

"Thank you QUEEN #KatherineJohnson for sharing your intelligence, poise, grace and beauty with the world! Because of your hard work little girls EVERYWHERE can dream as big as the MOON!!!" Taraji wrote. "Your legacy will live on FORVER AND EVER!!! You ran so we could fly!!!"
