There’s really just something about Tracee…

I came late to my appreciation of this glorious woman. Though she’d been a star for years, I first knew her as Rainbow Johnson on Black-ish, one of my all-time favorite sitcoms. I was instantly captivated by her huge eyes and brilliant comedic timing.

My knowledge that she was showbiz royalty came later, only after I’d fallen in love with “TMurda,” her hilarious rapper/alter-ego.

It’s difficult for me to put my finger on exactly what makes Tracee Ellis Ross one of my Taliswomen, alongside Dolly Parton & Zora Neale Hurston.

Suffice it to say, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen more joie de vivre in one human…what’s more loveable than that?
