Personal Quote:

[interview in Los Angeles Times, 1979, on "blaxploitation"] [That label] was used like racism, so you don't have to think of the individual elements, just the whole. If you study propaganda, you understand how this works.

Trivia:

Married to actor Carl Lumbly, the couple has a son, Brandon, born in 1988. She and Lumbly, who was a regular on Cagney & Lacey (1981), played husband and wife on the show in which she had a recurring role. See more »
