Doctorate in Girl Power: Felicia D. Henderson
What do the spunky twins of “Sister Sister,” the talented teen Moesha and the wealthy and mysterious “it” girl Serena van der Woodsen of “Gossip Girl” all have in common? In addition to being compelling female characters, they were all imagined by Felicia D. Henderson, who has written for and produced, often at the executive level, all of the shows above. Henderson, a California native with roots in Mississippi, has an endowed screenwriting scholarship in her name at UCLA, where she is earning her PhD in Cinema and Media Studies.
