Today is International Women's Day and what better way to celebrate than to share one of my many female inspirations, Angela Bassett. A woman who made her way as a strong black actress in the Hollywood machine, Bassett played some of the most memorable roles - Tina Turner in What's Love Got to Do With It to becoming the first black female Head of the Secret Service in Olympus Has Fallen. She played three different civil rights activists (Betty Shabazz in Malcolm X and Panther, Rosa Parks in The Rosa Parks Story, and Coretta Scott King in Betty and Coretta) and she's now becoming a legend for new generations with the American Horror Story series. Bassett showed her amazing talent during an interview with The Roots.com when asked to give a few lines of something she remembered from her career. What follows is nothing less than extraordinary. Enjoy and Happy International Women's Day to the fabulous women in your life!
