Actor and producer Kerry Washington covers the November 2017 issue of Allure magazine, styled byHanna Kelifa in 'Kerry On'. Photographer Sharif Hamza flashes Washington with an accompanying interview by Judith Newman the day after Charlottesville.
The duo meet at the Hammer Museum in LA, where Washington wants to experience the Gamelatron Sanctuary. In an honest, on-the-spot assessment reality check Newman writes:
While she is peacing out, I notice looming nearby an electric sign by the artist Sam Durant. It reads, simply, “END WHITE SUPREMACY.” We are having this interview the day after Charlottesville, and now I am supposed to be talking to one of the leading African-American actresses of our time about, um, moisturizer. This is very awkward for one of us. That one is not Kerry. I mention this to her.
