Trials to Triumphs

On this week's episode of Acting Up, Cortney Wills sits down with Ashley Blaine Featherson-Jenkins. The actress, producer, and proud Howard alum reveals what led to her latest project as the host of her own podcast, Trials to Triumphs on OWN, and how her life has changed since tying the knot. She also reveals the ways that her role on 'Dear White People' helped carve out her path in Hollywood and how the end of the beloved series prompted a return to her roots as a content creator.  They'll also get into what the TV buff is watching right now and where she still sees room for improvement when it comes to representing Black women onscreen. See for privacy information.
