Tracee Ellis Ross is not only spunky and adorable but she’s talented as well. Her mom is freakin Diana Ross so clearly she comes from a talent-inclined background.
Her first major role was Joan Clayton in the hit show Girlfriend. Her role as a successful lawyer was something to look up to, especially since her friends were equally successful; even if one was working for her and the other was finding herself, and the successful real estate agent was self- centered AF! The show lasted from 2000-2009.
Her role as Joan showed the world that a woman can be successful, date and their best life. Also, she rarely wore bras and she was a Corporate America type chick.
Tracee’s more recent role is Rainbow Johnson, a doctor, wife, and mother of 5 kids on the show Blackish. She makes it very clear that she’s a doctor and not a stay at home while since her husband Dre, played by Anthony Johnson, is a successful Senior Marketing Executive at a Marketing Firm.
Bow has spoken up about black dolls in a store not being idolized as successful women such as pilots, mathematicians and even doctors like herself. She believes in equality, even if that means her daughter playing a the lead role of a boy in a play and even if that means speaking out against her daughter being poorly lighted in a school photo because she is dark skinned. In her role, she’s comedic, so comedic that in 2017 she won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV series–Comedy. Tracee has also been nominated for an Oscar three times three years in a row.
I think it’s safe to say she’s DOPE AF and sets the standard.
