Taraji P. Henson may be one of the hardest working Black actresses in the movie biz, and now she’s revealing exactly where she got her work ethic from.

In the latest JET magazine, Henson says that her father showed her early on that anything worth having was worth working hard for.

Gotta love Taraji! She is definitely a black girl who rocks! Check out the rest over on ESSENCE.
