“I was with Seinfeld the other day. We were like, what we got? Five years? Six years? Literally. That’s not saying making a living. It’s saying, how much longer do you have where people are going to care what you say?…” Chris Rock, ESSENCE

For the first time ever, ESSENCE’s annual Hollywood March Issue cover features comedy vet and host of the highly anticipated 2016 Oscars Chris Rock—live and unfiltered! In the foreshadowing article, C. Rockconducted in December 2015 before #OscarsSoWhite reached fever pitch—Rock contemplates the diversity controversy, fatherhood after divorce and fame after reaching “the peak.” Plus, ESSENCE continues to change the conversation in Hollywood by gearing up for its 9th annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards luncheon (see link here and press release attached.) This year’s honorees—Tracee Ellis Ross, Debbie Allen and entertainment lawyer Nina Shaw—join a growing list of African-American women who continue to uplift and inspire both on-screen and off. The March issue of ESSENCE hits newsstands on 2/12.
