 熱き思い
インテリジェンス漂う演技。それでいて母性溢れる演技だったのが、「A Raisin in the Sun」の役であり、「Jungle Fever」のお母さん役だ。「It's good to be alive」のようなしたたかな役までと幅広い。

 バイオ
ポーターをしていた父と教師の母の元に、オハイオ州クリーブランドにて生まれる。幼い頃にニューヨークのハーレムに移り、大学もNYのハンター大学へ通った。その頃に「アメリカン・ニグロ・シアター」に入って俳優の下で、真剣に演技を勉強する。

舞台に立つようになり、1946年にAnna Lucastaの舞台で注目を集めるようになった。 1948年に、舞台等の仕事で共演したオシー・デイビスと結婚した。1950年には、そのデイビスと共に「No Way Out」で夫婦役を演じ映画デビューする。同じ年に、野球のスーパースター、ジャッキー・ロビンソンの自伝映画に、本人が自ら出演し話題となった「The Jackie Robinson Story」で、ロビンソンの妻を演じ、映画でも注目されるようになった。舞台が映画化された「A Raisin in the Sun」では、シドニー・ポワチエの妻を演じて「National Board Review」の助演女優賞を受賞した。

60年代、70年代を通じて、まだ数少なかった素敵な女性役を演じ、1989年の「Do the Right Thing」で、スパイク・リー映画に出演し、若者の心も掴む。50年以上ものパートナーとなるオシー・デイビスと共に、映画以外でも、地域活動などに積極的に参加している。
