*Last week (08-28-19) EURweb was at The Paley Center of Media in Beverly Hills for the red carpet where two of Hollywood’s finest: NAACP Award-winning actress Lynn Whitfield and Tony Award-winner Phylicia Rashad sat for a special conversation that discussed the cultural, the creative, and social significance of television, radio, and emerging platforms.
The Paley Center of Media’s PaleyLive programs allows for entertainment fans the opportunity to engage with casts and creative teams with the goal of expanding society’s understanding of the cultural, creative, and social significance of media.
These two ladies have dazzled in countless entertainment roles on the big screen, television, and on the stage. Lynn Whitfield, who most recently has starred in OWN’s “Greenleaf” as “First Lady” Daisy Mae and Phylicia Rashad, who will star as Dr. Woods-Trap in the upcoming drama series “David Makes Man” also on OWN. There is no denying these actresses are entertainment queen’s in the industry with careers that span five decades they had plenty of insight and wisdom and were happy to share.
