July 17, 2020

Spelman College graduate and BronzeLens festival volunteer, Bria Henderson, has been tapped for a recurring role opposite Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Banks in Mrs. America

FX’s nine episode limited series from Emmy winning writer Dahvi Waller, Oscar nominated producer Stacey Sher and FX Productions.

 

Mrs. America tells the true story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafy (played by Blanchett). Through the eyes of the women of that era both Schlafly and second wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the ‘70s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted our political landscape.

 

Henderson will play Ms. Magazine editor Margaret Sloan, an outspoken, funny, radical thinking African American feminist and civil rights activist who marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. A lesbian, single mother and accomplished poet, Sloan was an intersectional trailblazer in several cultural and political movements.
