Taraji P. Henson On New Book: ‘God Gave Me This Cross To Bear…Now I Can Share It’


Taraji P. Henson can now add author to her list of accomplishments. Around The Way Girl is Henson’s newest project that details the life of the Academy Award nominated actress, chronicling her time in an abusive relationship and getting pregnant while still in college at Howard University.


She talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about why she decided to share her life story, her take on the Presidential debate and Hidden Figures, her new film in theaters in January.

“I felt like the story was needed. It wasn’t something that I said I was going to do. Once social media became very popular, I was able to talk to my fans. They would say ‘your story is so inspirational, you should write a book’. God gave me this cross to bear so I can share it,” Henson said.

Around The Way Girl is available everywhere, today.
