Kerry Washington, award-winning actor, director, producer, and activist, tells the “exquisitely moving” journey of her life thus far (Isabel Wilkerson), as well as the boldly intimate story of realizing her truth.
On a seemingly ordinary afternoon in Los Angeles, Kerry Washington received a text message that would take her on a life-changing voyage of self-discovery. Her fundamental identity was shattered in an instant, and everything she believed she knew about herself was called into question.
Washington gives readers an intimate look at her public and private lives as a mother, daughter, wife, artist, advocate, and trailblazer in Thicker than Water. She reveals how she faced a series of challenges and setbacks, effectively hid childhood traumas, met extraordinary mentors, managed to grow her career, and crossed the threshold into stardom and political advocacy, ultimately discovering her truest self and, with it, a deeper sense of belonging.
Washington seeks to answer the questions that so many have wrestled with throughout this truly touching and wonderfully written memoir: Who am I? What is my most honest and true self? How can I develop a stronger sense of connection and belonging? She invites readers to look for—and find—themselves with grace and honesty.
Kerry Washington’s hard-won metamorphosis from a sheltered young girl growing up in the Bronx to a great actor who would play one of television’s most iconic characters is an incredibly beautiful story of grace and wisdom. While doing so, she sheds light on the acting world, the trials and tribulations of womanhood, and the true, full meaning of family. It was both a gift and a revelation.
