Jenifer Lewis is the accomplished television and film actress who stars in the ABC hit sitcom, black-ish. She has penned her memoir, The Mother of Black Hollywood, which has received outstanding reviews for its raw transparency and depth of storytelling. For example, the former stage actress writes: “Performing on Broadway was a rush. The applause coming over the footlights was like a tsunami in slow motion. The crash after the show, I assure you, is just as intense.
“Let’s just say that post show I had a sort of habit of sex serving as a night cap. I was Cleopatra, Pam Grier, Marilyn Monroe and Jezebel rolled into one.
“For me, nothing could extend the thrill of a standing ovation like great sex with a gorgeous guy.”
