Celebrated actress Jenifer Lewis without a doubt is one of the funniest Black women in the business. She has now added author to her many titles with the penning of The Mother Of Black Hollywood: A Memoir available everywhere books are sold.


On the ABC hit show, Black-ish Lewis plays Anthony Anderson’s mother and is one of the most beloved characters. On her role, she had this to say: “I’m going to be honest with you all. Black-ish is the cherry on top of my career,” expressed Lewis. “Combine that drama and comedy together to express their opinions about police brutality, depression, and race relations.”

She’s on a book tour right with stops in Baltimore (Empowerment Temple), South Florida, Chicago, and Detroit.
