This December brings special holiday cheer as two-time Oscar Winners Denzel Washington and Viola Davis flank the cover of ESSENCE magazine.
ESSENCE features the story of this first film adaptation of the August Wilson’s Century Cycle making it to the big screen.
Denzel and Viola speak on the significance of bringing this African American experience to film audiences —and why Mr. Wilson’s words are as important today as they will be tomorrow.
They discuss their reunion after the award-winning Broadway revival of Fences back in 2010, and the mutual honor they feel continuing the legacy of our beloved, master storyteller, August Wilson.
Check newsstands today for what ESSENCE calls their “Holiday Magic” cover.
