Worthy Women // Tracee Ellis Ross

I was first introduced to this next worthy woman via the wildly popular UPN/CW comedy series, Girlfriends. Tracee Ellis Ross played Joan Clayton, Esq., a woman who I did (and still do) identify with: a super successful woman in a male dominated field, who isn’t afraid to follow her dreams, and, although she seems to have it all together, she has her own quirks and a love life that is always in shambles (can I get an “Amen!” on that last one?!). Plus, she always has an amazing ‘fro.

These days, Tracee Ellis Ross plays a mixed race anesthesiologist named Dr. Rainbow “Bow” Johnson on the well received ABC show, Black-ish.

“It was when I realized I needed to stop trying to be somebody else and be myself, I actually started to own, accept, and love what I had.”- Tracee Ellis Ross for Los Angeles Times

“Money follows art. Money wants what it can’t buy. Class and talent. And remember while there’s talent for making money, it takes real talent to know how to spend it.”- Candace Bushnell
